Clouded Leopard

At A Glance

  • Conservation Status: Threatened
  • Few people have seen a clouded leopard, either in its wild rain forest habitat in Southeast Asia or in a zoo. The clouded leopard remains just as mysterious today, and most of what we know about these cats comes from observing them in zoos.

    Named for its cloud-like spots, clouded leopards are a unique genus of cat and not just a type of leopard. They have a stocky build and are larger than small cat species, and smaller than the large cats. Their long canine teeth are the same size as those of a tiger, even though a tiger is 10 times larger in body size!

    Our clouded leopards serve as animal ambassadors. They make appearances on television and can often be seen during the Zoo’s Animals in Action encounter or out strolling Zoo grounds on leash with a trainer for some exercise.
