The Nashville Zoo welcomed two litters of clouded leopard cubs born over the course of a week last month. These three are the cubs of Jing Jai and Lom Choy, the zoo's two breeding females who came to the zoo through the Thailand Clouded Leopard Consortium. The births are a significant step to establishing a self-sustaining breeding program for this seriously endangered species. Photo: AP/Nashville Zoo
