TACOMA, Wash.  – A clouded leopard at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium gave birth two cubs Tuesday.

This is Chai Li's first letter.

“There is nothing cuter than clouded leopard cubs,” said staff biologist Andy Goldfarb in a press release “They appear healthy and are doing well.”

Point Defiance Zoo said it is one of only three zoos in the country breeding endangered clouded leopards, along with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Zoo and the Nashville Zoo.

Visitors will be able to see the cubs in a couple of weeks. Zoo staff will invite the public to vote on the cubs’ names once they are safely settled.
