Clouded leopards explore new home at National Zoo

Two clouded leopard cubs quickly climbed the trees at their new enclosure along the Asia Trail at the National Zoo, which is part of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.

They are the first pair of clouded leopards to live at the zoo.

The clouded leopard is considered a separate species from snow leopards and regular leopards.

They are particulary adapted to life in the trees, able to climb down headfirst.

The large feline is native to Southeast Asia, from the foothills of the Himalayan mountains in Nepal into China.

The species is listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The National Zoo also hosts giant pandas, orangutans and other endangered species.
