Amani’s cubs have already turned one year old! They are such big kids now. They are still really playful but look almost like adults. Ashaki and Pounce are the largest of the five weighing a little over 80 pounds, and Damisi is still the smallest at 63 pounds.
I am able to work with each individual cub now, and I have trained them to accept Frontline applications, scale, and crate training. I will be working on injection training for the future. They have been moved to another yard and have been having fun exploring. We threw a birthday party for them last Friday. Their “cub cake” was made out of meat and bloodsicles layered together with bones and rats frozen into it. They loved it! They shared very well, and their mother Amani helped them enjoy their cake too. They also had streamers, wrapped boxes and gift bags with treats inside.
