Covering the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest

Sekiu, you’ve got competition … baby clouded leopards!

Sure, we all are in love with Sekiu, the baby sea otter at the Seattle Aquarium. Here she is playing with ice and growing nice and big, in some recent videos from the Seattle Aquarium’s blog.

But as usual the Seattle/Tacoma rivalry brings us some stiff competition from down south: Not one, but two baby clouded leopards born at the Point Defiance Zoo this week. Here they are on video.

For more on the baby clouded leopards, check out the zoo’s website. The male and female cubs will be on view in a few weeks.

A healthy pair of clouded leopards were born March 6 at the Point Defiance Zoo. At birth, each weighed only about 8 ounces. Good looking claws!
