Clouded Leopard Cubs Born at Nashville Zoo
Congratulations to the Nashville Zoo on the birth of three cubs (2 males and 1 female) on May 30. The cubs were born to a pair imported from Thailand's Khao Kheow Open Zoo in 2008 as part of the Thailand Clouded Leopard Consortium. This is great news on the heels of the birth of the two male cubs at the National Zoo, also the offspring of cats imported from Thailand. The female cub from Nashville will eventually be paired with one of the National Zoo's male cubs. It's great to see such a positive outcome for all the effort that has gone into the Thailand breeding program for many years. Congratulations to all involved!
