Houston Zoo clouded leopards

Two impossibly cute clouded leopard cubs were born to first-time parents Suksn and Tarak on June 6 at the Houston Zoo. It’s also the first clouded leopard birth at the zoo. The kittens like to show off big cat skills, pouncing on each other — and their stuffed animals. After their birth, the pair was moved to a veterinary clinic, where they’re getting 24-hour care from the zoological team. Because the animals are so rare, it’s common practice for zoos to hand raise them. — Read it at Zooborns and see more photos of adorable zoo babies
