Denver Zoo Celebrates The Birth Of Two Clouded Leopard Cubs [PICTURES]
There are two new babies at the Denver Zoo


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.

Denver Zoo Staff Helps Save The Life Of A Newborn Tamandua [PICTURES]

On March 7, Southern tamandua Rio gave birth to her first offspring, believed to be female, whom keepers have named Cayenne. Unfortunately, Rio left the baby unattended within the first 24 hours and was not allowing her to nurse. Staff stepped in to give supplementary feedings day and night while monitoring the baby’s condition. They continued to give Rio time to bond with and nurse her baby, and Rio is slowly learning her role as a mother. Little by little, Rio is becoming more accustomed to Cayenne behind-the-scenes at the Zoo’s Gates Animal Housing Center.

“We knew from our conversations with experts at other zoos that it can take a new tamandua mother a while to develop maternal instincts, and first births of this species typically have low success rates,” says Denver Zoo Education Animal Programs Manager Kristin Smith. “We were determined, though, to make sure this baby would survive while Rio figured out how to be a good mom.”

The White Pages, Rubik's Cube, BlockBuster video, "Gremlins" and the Cold War are all seamlessly invoked by "The Following" star -- also an '80s icon for his lead role in 1984's "Footloose."

"You have no idea how hard it was," he says. But he does, man, because he was there. Watch and learn.

Bacon, star of many large-ensemble films, also appeared Saturday on a panel at SXSW in Austin, Texas, revisiting the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon phenomenon 20 years after its inception, relating it to today's social media. With him was Brian Turtle, who created the game with two friends, according to CNET.
