Little Leopard Learns to Leap

These zookeepers know how to help a clouded leopard cub have a good time.

Watch as the inventive staff members at Point Defiance Zoo& Aquarium in Tacoma, Wash., help the just over 3-month-old Tien work on his balance and coordination — all while he jumps and plays!

The rare cub was born on May 1 at the zoo to mom Chai-Li and dad Nah Fun. The little guy has been hand-reared by his keepers.
