Well, I don’t know about all of you, but I could surely use some cutesy pictures of adorable baby animals in my life, because, at least that would put a big, stupid smile on my face while we’re going through a bloody pandemic. And gladly, Zoo Miami knows what desperate people want exactly because recently, the zoo announced the birth of two highly endangered clouded leopard kittens by posting a series of photos on Twitter, and looking at those disgustingly dainty little innocents, the internet can’t help but collectively d’aw.
Apparently, the cubs were born back on February 11, 2020, but they had been kept isolated in a shelter with their mother, Serai, to evade any external stress on them, and to let the mother-cubs relation fondle!
The South Florida zoo made an official announcement of the currently-unnamed Clouded Leopard Kittens on Twitter this week:
On Tuesday, the cute cubs received their first series of vaccinations. It was only the second time that the veterinary staff was able to get their fingers on the two kittens.
Clouded leopards are native to bushes within Southern China, Taiwan, and Malaysia, and are rated highly endangered.
This adorable species of the cat family can weigh anywhere from 30-50 pounds, plus they have dark grey fur with a black and grey striped pattern.
