Zoo baby alert.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

On March 24, the National Zoo in the United States welcomed their newest family members: two new clouded leopard babies! The little leopards were born to parents Hannibal and Jao Chu, who were imported to the zoo from Thailand in 2008. The rare and adorable babies, who haven't yet been named, are the first clouded leopards to be born at the National Zoo in 16 years. Zoo officials say that they will both be hand-fed to increase their chances of survival.
