A female clouded leopard at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Va., gave birth to a litter of two cubs Monday, March 28. Staff had been on a pregnancy watch of the 2-year-old Sita (SEE-ta) for one day. Sita gave birth to the first cub at 1:15 p.m. and the second cub at 1:25 p.m. The male cub weighed 9.48 ounces and the female cub weighed 7.76 ounces. This is the first litter for Sita, who came from the Nashville Zoo, and the father, 2-year-old Ta Moon (TAH-moon). The cubs are being hand-reared by SCBI staff.
