The newborn cub, who was born on Sept. 7, does not yet have a name
The Nashville Zoo's animal family has expanded by one!
Earlier this week, the Tennessee-based attraction announced the birth of a baby clouded leopard in a post shared on Facebook.
Born on Sept. 7, the cub weighed in at under half of a pound and was about 8 inches long, the zoo said.
The establishment added that the newborn is part of the second litter for mated pair Niran and Ron, and was the 43rd cub born at the Nashville Zoo since 2009.
The new addition — who does not currently have a name — can be seen in the coming weeks at the Zoo’s HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center, the zoo said.

Last month, the Nashville Zoo received from a private source a male clouded leopard cub from the Oklahoma City Zoo, along with two females.
When all four of the animals are old enough, they will be put in an exhibit, where they will grow up and eventually be paired to mate, according to the zoo.
“We are thrilled to introduce these genetically diverse cubs to each other early in their lives,” Nashville Zoo’s Director of Veterinary Services, Heather Schwartz, said in a statement, per WKRN.
“They will stay in the nursery until they are old enough to be paired and moved to larger habitats here at the Zoo," she added.
The Nashville Zoo — which is "a national leader in clouded leopard breeding and care," per the establishment — was "chosen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' (AZA) Clouded Leopard Species Survival Plan (SSP) to oversee the upbringing and eventual pairing of all four cubs," the zoo wrote on Facebook.
