There are two new babies at the Denver Zoo!
Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of two clouded leopard cubs which were born March 14, the first births of their species at the Zoo. The unnamed cubs, a male and a female, are doing well now after zookeepers began steps to hand-raise them. Their mother, Lisu (LEE-soo), gave birth to the cubs in a private birthing stall inside Toyota Elephant Passage, but did not then tend to them.
Zookeepers will hand raise the twin cubs due to mother’s inexperience
After a few hours, zookeepers moved the cubs to another building and began a protocol to provide food and medicine every three hours for the time being. The cubs will remain behind-the-scenes until they grow older.
