Clouded leopard arrives at Thai zoo

Last month, scientists claimed that the clouded leopard found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra is an entirely new species of cat. One such example of this new species is now on show at the Kow Keow Zoo, 45kms outside of Pattaya. This press conference presented the Leopard to the gathered media and it was announced that in association with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the cat has been renamed the ASEAN Leopard, to celebrate the 40th Year of ASEAN, the Association of South East Asian Nations. The Leopard will be on display at the Zoo accompanied by a small Exhibition of the history of ASEAN and its importance in this region of the World.
