Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo released video on Wednesday (March 9) showing a set of new-born clouded leopard cubs who recently joined the zoo.

The video and photographs show the boy and girl, wrapped up in blankets, being fed from a bottle by the zoo staff.

The two tiny creatures were born on February 29, 2016.

The zoo said in a statement that the two babies were the first "multiples" birth they had had from the parents.

The parent leopards produced their first cub in 2015, a boy called Mowgli, named after the main character in Rudyard Kipling's novel "The Jungle Book."

The clouded leopard was classified as a vulnerable species in 2008 by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The group states that the current population is estimated at less than 10,000 "mature individuals" world wide.
