As if you need a reason to watch a short video of a cute baby animal, right?

We've got this quickie of the San Diego Zoo's fierce little furry one Haui-san, a Clouded Leopard cub, who was caught on camera exuberantly jumping from limb to rock inside his exhibit area, which is called the Urban Jungle.

Especially awww-worthy is when Haui-san noses right up to the camera, and then, like a kitty cat would, takes a breather to do a little grooming.

Haui-san made his debut at the San Diego Zoo in December 2012, after arriving with his brother Riki-san, who were products of a breeding program in Nashville that are helping boost the population of this rare breed.
