The newest addition to Tampa, Florida’s Lowry Park Zoo made his internet debut… and it’s painfully cute!

The zoo released a clip of its 2-week-old clouded leopard cub as he laid around one of the zoo’s veterinary offices, squeaking his way into the heart of his online audience.

“He is very vocal, particularly near feeding time which occurs approximately every four hours,” the zoo said in a statement.

The cub’s dad is named Yim and mother is named Malee, but the cub himself doesn’t have a name yet.

The cub will be hand-reared by the zoo’s vets for the first three months of his life.

“He has started to crawl (or scoot) along using his front legs, and should be strong enough to move steadily on all four by one month of age,” the zoo said in a statement.
