TORONTO (WMC) - The Toronto Zoo is full of babies after some adorable leopard and cheetah cubs were born.
The zoo saw the birth of three snow leopard cubs on May 18. The cubs were born to the zoo's 7-year-old female "Ena" and dad "Kota," their 13-year-old male.
All three cubs have been observed nursing very well and they will continue to be monitored via camera by Wildlife Care staff.
In addition, the zoo made history with the birth of its first clouded leopard cubs. The two cubs are the first clouded leopard cubs to be born at the zoo, and they made their entrance into the world on May 13.
They were born to mom "Pavarti" and dad "Mingma." Both parents were born at the Nashville Zoo. Pavarti was born in Nashville on April 30, 2013, and Mingma was born in Nashville on February 2, 2013.
According to the zoo's Facebook page, the mother showed early signs of good maternal instincts, but then declined in care.
In addition to the leopards, five cheetah cubs were born on the Zoo's off-exhibit cheetah breeding area.
Mom 'Laini' is doing a 'superb' job at caring for the liter, according to the Zoo.
