Two clouded leopard cubs won’t find themselves in Tacoma anymore, after they move to Kansas in early October to meet their future mates.
The two males, half of the quadruplets born at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium on May 12, will be sent to Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Wichita, Kansas.
This weekend will be the last chance for visitors to see the duo, Kapok and Teak. They’ll be in an exercise yard with their two siblings from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, if weather allows.
A male, Banyan, and Orchid, a female, are the two cubs staying at the Tacoma zoo.
Never miss a local story.
Point Defiance is part of the Species Survival Plan breeding program for clouded leopards.
Also on Saturday, a birthday celebration will be held for the Point Defiance Sumatran tiger triplets, who turn 1 next week.
Dari, Indah and Kirana are each about 150 pounds.
They’ll get special treats at 12:30 p.m., and visitors will get treats too, until the zoo runs run out.
