    Clouded Leopard gets name and a friend

    A 2-month-old clouded leopard cub at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium has made a new friend and has a name!

    The cub, whose name is Rukai, was born March 14. After the Pittsburgh Zoo contacted other zoos about finding a companion, Tanganyika Wildlife Park reached out because it had a cub that was also in need of a companion.

    Rukai's adorable new companion, named Kansas, was born just four days apart from Rukai.

    Both cubs are doing well together and once they get more acclimated to their surroundings they'll start transitioning into the clouded leopard exhibit.
