NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The two clouded leopard cubs born at the Nashville Zoo earlier this year are beginning to make regular appearances several times a week.

Sip Saam and Natida will be on display every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Zoo officials advise the cubs’ appearances could be altered on a short notice due to construction or weather-related issues.

The Nashville Zoo is a leader in clouded leopard conservation and breeding. Since 2009, the Nashville Zoo has raised 24 clouded leopards that have gone on to live at zoos worldwide.

The zoo also welcomed two female clouded leopards born in late June.

Clouded leopards are considered vulnerable to extinction due to deforestation, poaching and pet trade.
