Two Tiny Clouded Leopard Cubs Get Their Names

Point Defiance Zoo Leopard Update 6

The Point Defiance Zoo's 6-week-old Clouded Leopard cubs received their names on Thursday July 28. The male will be called TAJI, meaning “little brother" in Burmese, and the female is SUMALEE, meaning “flower" in Thai. Most of the names in the poll were Thai because Thailand is one of the native habitats for the endangered Clouded Leopards. The Zoo had more than 5,000 votes submitted to its naming poll.
