WATCH: Tiny clouded leopard napping is adorable

- Lowry Park Zoo released new video and photos of their 6-week-old clouded leopard cubs looking as cute as ever.

The two clouded leopard cubs, a male and a female, were born at the zoo on Feb. 29. The zoo's animal care team said the mother nursed the cubs initially, but shortly after, she stopped caring for them, so the team stepped in to help and took care of them around the clock.

They'll eventually grow to between 30-50 pounds and will measure about five-feet-long including their tail.

Clouded leopards are listed as a "vulnerable" species. The parent leopards, "Yim" and "Malee," have lived together at the zoo since they were six-months-old and are part of the Clouded Leopard Species Survival Plan to help conserve at-risk wildlife.

When the cubs get to be several months old, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums will decide on their future home.
