Four clouded leopard cubs are healthy, growing and adorable at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington, Seattle's KIRO-TV reports. Their eyes are still closed, and the practiced hands of caring zookeepers guide their eager mouths to the bottles.

The smallest of the cubs weighs just 11.11 ounces and the largest is 12.41, which is about the same weight as a box of corn flakes. Two of them will fit in the palms of a zookeeper's hands.

Staff biologist Andy Goldfarb, who has worked with exotic cats for three decades, is pleased with their progress.

"They are eating and gaining weight," he said. "All four are active and moving around well."

The quadruplets were born May 12 to Chai Li. Their father is her mate, Nah Fun.

They are not yet on exhibit. The zoo will announce later this month when the public will be able to see them and reveal details on how and when they'll be named.

One feeding session for all four cubs takes about two hours, and the cubs require feeding about every three hours. There is a lot of care besides giving bottles of formula that must be done for each cub, Goldfarb said.

Hand-raising cubs is routine in the Association of Zoos & Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program for clouded leopards and produces the best results for their health and well-being, zoo General Curator Karen Goodrowe Beck said.

"These cats are precious," Goldfarb said. "Clouded leopards are endangered, and there is constant pressure on the species from poaching, habitat loss and other human-animal conflict."

In honor of the 95th birthday of the fifth-oldest roller coaster in the world, one man has ridden the Jack Rabbit at Kennywood Park 95 times in one day.

Vic Kleman, 82, of Pittsburgh, has kept track of how many times he’s been on the Jack Rabbit since his first ride in 1959.

Kleman began riding the roller coaster at approximately 10:30 a.m. Sunday and broke the 5,000-ride barrier just after 7:30 p.m., spending a total of nine hours on the coaster.

“The thrill of riding the Jack Rabbit never gets old for me,” Kleman said. “It just makes me feel good.” 

“It takes a certain kind of commitment, and craziness, to ride a roller coaster 95 times in a row," said Jerome Gibas, Kennywood general manager. "But those are the kind of feelings Kennywood creates in people."

Kleman said he felt great after finishing the feat and added he made sure to exercise his legs after sitting down for so long.

The "Frozen" attraction will be located between the Norway and Mexico attractions inside Epcot, according to the plans.

Visitor Brittany Kirk and her mom were thrilled to hear about the expansion.

"(Our) brand new puppy for Christmas is named Elsa," Kirk said.

The expansion includes a 13,000-square-foot building that will serve as the main attraction.

"It's just going to open it up so much wider, so more children will be coming on that side versus just the rides on the other side," Kirk said.

The attraction is scheduled to open in 2016 and is replacing the Maelstrom ride, which was taken down last year.

Disney officials said their "Imagineers" are still working on the design and image of the "Frozen" attraction.
