Leopard cubs born in Seattle-area zoo

A pair of baby clouded leopard cubs are the newest residents at a zoo near Seattle. The male and female baby cubs were born Tuesday at the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma.

Zoo officials say they only weigh about a half-pound each, but once fully grown could weigh up to 50 pounds.

In a few weeks, the newborns will move into the zoo's cub den, where visitors can see them up close for the first time.

The zoo says the public will have a chance to suggest names for the cubs.
