The clouded leopard cub born last month at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium now has a name and can be seen by visitors to the zoo.
Tien, (pronounced Tea-n), was named by zookeepers for the Thai word meaning strong, stable and steady, though it’s not a direct translation, according to staff.
He was born to mother Chai Li and dad Nah Fun May 1, weighing about half a pound.
The now 4-pound cub made his public debut Saturday, and can be seen on exhibit for feedings at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily.
Sumatran tiger cub Kali takes over the cub den for feedings at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
She was born April 17, and weighs about 16 pounds now, the zoo said. She first went on exhibit May 9.
Both clouded leopards and Sumatran tigers are endangered species.
