 A pair of adorable clouded leopard kittens can now been seen at the Naples Zoo.

The two kittens were born on February 22nd and they are both female. One kitten weighed just 244 grams at birth, while the other weighed 262 grams. They were born to three-year-old clouded leopard, Tika.

Clouded leopard kittens are reportedly born with their eyes and ears closed. After 10 to 14 days, their eyes usually open. Since then, the two clouded leopard kittens have grown larger.

Starting Tuesday, the kittens can be seen between 10 a.m. to noon each day, the zoo says. Then on Wednesday, the kittens will appear in the 2:30 p.m. Seated Safari shows. 

Clouded leopards typically live in the forest and trees of southeast Asia. They are listed as endangered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service under the United States Endangered Species Act. They are threatened in the wild by human encroachment, destruction of its habitat, and poaching.
