School is in Session for Clouded Leopard Cubs

When clouded leopard cubs Jilian and Paitoon made their debut at the Asia Trail last September, it was a historic moment. Although the Smithsonian’s National Zoo has exhibited this rare cat before, they were the first cubs to serve as (adorable) ambassadors for their species. Get a sneak peek into one very important aspect of Jilian and Paitoon’s daily care at the Zoo: training.
