What to know about endangered species

OKLAHOMA Town − Days right after the Oklahoma City Zoo and the conservation group welcomed a group of flamingo chicks and a crimson panda cub, they have now welcomed a small just one that will also reinforce a species at danger of extinction − a infant leopard.

OKC Zoo’s clouded leopard Rukai gave birth to a male kitten on July 18 following a 90-day gestation interval at the Zoo’s Cat Forest habitat, the zoo stated in an update on social media.

“Caretakers report the kitten is balanced and doing almost everything a new child should really be executing – ingesting, sleeping and escalating,” claimed the zoo.

The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden's 2-year-old female clouded leopard, Rukai, gave birth to this female kitten on Aug. 6 at the zoo’s Cat Forest habitat.

As the male kitten proceeds to strengthen and thrive, he will sooner or later be moved to another Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited zoo to breed. He will also act as a demonstration animal for the application as an ambassador for his species, boosting recognition and advertising and marketing conservation initiatives.
