TACOMA -- A clouded leopard cub born May 1 at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma is now on public exhibit.
Zookeepers named him Tien, a Thai word with a connotation of strength and stability.
The News Tribune reports the cub weighed a half-pound when born and now weighs more than 4 pounds. The public can see him at daily 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. feedings.
