Attention all feline lovers, we have very important news — cats! And we're not talking about the ones on Tiger King. The world recently welcomed two highly endangered clouded leopard kittens at Zoo Miami.\nWhile the babies were actually born on February 11, they've been hidden away in a secluded cave with their mother to avoid stress and allow bonding. So it comes as big news that the facility finally posted photos of the babies today on their social media.\n"Zoo Miami is excited to announce the successful births of highly endangered clouded leopards," the beginning of their announcement post reads, followed by a gallery of 18 fur baby photos to melt over.\nThis isn't the first time the cubs have been separated from mom, it's just the first time the public is hearing about (and seeing) them.\nAfter their first exam on February 26, zoo staff confirmed that the litter consisted of one male and one female. This comes as great news to conservationists since the species is endangered due to poaching.\nPosted by Zoo Miami on Tuesday, April 7, 2020\nThis is the second successful littler for mama leopard Serai and papa leopard Rajasi, who were both born in the spring of 2011 at the Smithsonian’s Conservation and Research Center in Virginia and the Nashville Zoo in Tennessee, respectively.\nView this post on Instagram School's out, Miami "winter" temps are here and it couldn't be a more beautiful day to celebrate Visit the Zoo Day with us! #VisitTheZooDay Photo credit: @ronmagillconservation A post shared by Zoo Miami (@zoomiami) on Dec 27, 2019 at 7:46am PST\nBoth babies are doing well and were able to receive their first vaccinations.\n"Both offspring appear to be thriving and the mother continues to be attentive and nursing them on a regular basis," the post mentions.\nView this post on Instagram Zoo Miami is excited to announce the successful births of highly endangered clouded leopards. The two kittens were born on February 11 and have been secluded in a den with their mother since then to avoid any external stress and allow proper bonding. The mother, “Serai,” was born on May of 2011 at the Smithsonian’s Conservation and Research Center in Virginia and the father, named “Rajasi,” was born in March of 2011 at the Nashville Zoo in Tennessee. This is the second successful litter for both parents. Zoo staff was able to separate the mother from her kittens to do an initial neonatal exam on February 26 in order to evaluate the condition of the kittens and accurately determine their sexes. It was confirmed at that time that the litter consisted of one male and one female. Since that time, the kittens have continued to develop well while remaining in seclusion with their mother. Today, they were once again separated to receive their initial vaccines and to confirm that they are developing well. Both offspring appear to be thriving and the mother continues to be attentive and nursing them on a regular basis. With the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent revelation that a tiger had contracted the disease at another zoological facility, extra care is being taken by all staff working around these kittens. New procedures include stepping into disinfecting footbaths prior to entering any feline area as well as using masks and gloves while working in those areas. Clouded Leopards are a very secretive cat found in forests within Southern China, Taiwan, and Malaysia. Adults usually weigh between 30 and 50 pounds and they have a very long tail with relatively short legs and large paws to facilitate their frequent arboreal lifestyle. Their diet includes a variety of birds and mammals including monkeys, deer, and porcupines. Clouded leopards have the longest canine teeth relative to their size of any wild cat. They are highly endangered over most of their range due to hunting for their attractive pelts which have ceremonial value in a variety of cultures.
