MIAMI — Zoo Miami is welcoming the births of two highly endangered clouded leopards.

The South Florida zoo says the male and female have been secluded in a den with their mother, Serai, since their Feb. 11 birth.

The kittens were meant to properly bond with their mother while avoiding external stress.

Zookeepers took the kittens Tuesday to check their development and give them their initial vaccines. Officials say both offspring appear to be thriving, and the mother continues to be attentive and nursing them on a regular basis.
