Video: Watch a Baby Leopard Playing in His 'Urban Jungle'

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!

This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

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.
