Our twelve-week-old clouded leopard cubs Koshi and Senja took their first romp in the grass today during one of their final days behind-the-scenes. As they grow, their mischievous personalities are becoming more and more apparent. Koshi thinks it’s fun to practice his aerial skills by leaping onto the caregivers while Senja prefers climbing and has perfected the art of escaping over the baby gate barrier.
The pair, born June 6, will soon be moved into their permanent home inside the zoo after nearly three months of around-the-clock care by zookeepers. They will make their public debut in mid-September after a habitat acclimation period, which will take place under the watchful eyes of the carnivore team.
