Chan-Soon and his sister Suksn (sook-son) ventured out to their playground last weekend for a little tree climbing practice. Born March 6th, the cubs are very playful and curious, and for a while every shutter click of my camera got their attention.
The clouded leopard is endangered, and Point Defiance is one of only 3 zoos in the country that has an active clouded leopard breeding program.
The clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) is a felid found from the Himalayan foothills through mainland Southeast Asia into China. Its total population size is suspected to be fewer than 10,000 mature individuals, with a decreasing population trend and no single population numbering more than 1,000 adults.
