Apparently even clouded leopards can’t escape China’s rising obesity epidemic. According to staff at the Chengdu Zoo, this guy is called Xiaoyun (小云, little cloud), and in his old age, he spends most of his time sleeping, eating, and packing on the pounds.
Images of the leopard tottering around his enclosure looking less-than-spritely have gone viral on Weibo, where users have gently poked fun at his rotund appearance, comparing him to famously fat cartoon cats like Garfield and Doraemon.
Someone even got a close-up picture of that much-dreaded neck fat. Give the guy a break, he’s old.
