Denver Zoo welcomed a 5-week-old female clouded leopard cub Sunday that may be encouraged to breed there later in life.

Meanwhile, the zoo will have to come up with a name for its newest addition.

The cub arrived on a flight from Virginia. Zookeepers hope to socialize her with the zoo’s other clouded leopard cubs, Pi and Rhu.

“With few cubs in zoos, this is a very important step to ensuring a stable long-term population,” said Rebecca McCloskey, an assistant curator at the zoo.
