Nashville Zoo’s Newest Clouded Leopard Cubs in Public Viewing Area

 

Nashville Zoo 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Waiting to see the Nashville Zoo’s newest and cutest clouded leopard cubs in person? Now’s your chance! Guests can see the two cubs through a viewing window at the HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center neonatal animal care room.

After their mother Niran gave birth, the Zoo’s veterinary team removed the cubs to hand rear. The veterinary staff often hand raise clouded leopard cubs due to the common nature of this species to neglect their offspring, which was the case with Niran. Hand rearing also lowers animal stress for future hands-on care.
