Tien the clouded leopard was born May 1, 2013 and is the third litter born to Chai Li (chai‐lye) and her mate Nah Fun (nah‐foon). Clouded leopards are among the best climbers in the cat family, able to climb upside down and hang from branches with their hind feet.
Sheldon is a serval born at Zoo Boise on March 27, 2013. He has been hand reared since the age of three weeks to be an education animal. He will be part of our live animal show this summer. Servals are native to Africa and can leap over twice their own body length - a pounce may span up to 12 feet and may be over 3 feet high. Their large ears give them a great sense of hearing.
