Clouded leopard cubs debut at San Diego Zoo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Zoo is welcoming a new addition -- two clouded leopard cubs.

Zookeepers say Riki-san and his brother Haui-san are 14 weeks old and weigh about 13 pounds.

The pair arrived earlier this week from the Nashville Zoo, where a breeding program is helping to increase the number of cloud leopards.

The animals are critically endangered, and are mainly found in the rainforests of southeast Asia.
