A rare clouded leopard was born on Wednesday at the zoo in Nashville, Tennessee. His birth is thanks to artificial insemination.

He will be hand-raised by zoo keepers and will eventually be introduced to a potential mate.

The zoo is collaborating with The Smithsonian National Zoo to help increase the population of the clouded leopard.
