Leopard Cubs Washington National Zoo


On March 24th an endangered clouded leopard at the National Zoo's Conservation and Research Center in Front Royal, Virginia, gave birth to a litter of two cubs early in the morning.

The Washington Post has a story and more photos of the clouded leopard cubs. The Post says the cubs had to be taken away from the mother immediately because she might harm the endangered cubs. Here's a video clip of one of the cubs being fed. If you don't say "aaaawwww" immediately, you clearly have a heart of stone.
