Miami Zoo recently announced some great news on their social media that will definitely brighten up your day. Last week, the Zoo welcomed two clouded leopard kittens and shared some adorable photos of the cubs on the internet.
According to Ron Magill Zoo’s communications director and goodwill ambassador, the kittens are doing great and are already getting accustomed to the world around them.
“Both of the kittens (girl and a boy) are growing and thriving!,” Magill wrote on his social media. “Hopefully, when this horrible pandemic runs its course, the public will be able to return to the zoo to see these beautiful animals in person!”
Magill also shared some additional photos of the cubs.
Clouded leopards are one of the most endangered cat species, being listed as “vulnerable” by International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species. It’s estimated that less than 10,000 of these cats remain in the wild with the population shrinking because of poachers and habitat loss. They are mostly present in Nepal, Bangladesh, eastern India Sumatra and Borneo, southern China and Taiwan.
