TACOMA -- Four clouded leopard cubs were introduced to the media at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium Thursday.
The cubs, which were born on May 12, have not yet been named. They each weigh over a pound.
The cubs will be available for public viewing at the zoo starting Friday.
Clouded leopards, named for their thundercloud markings, are so shy and elusive it’s impossible to know how many of these arboreal cats remain in the wild. Fewer than 100 live in accredited North American zoos.
