Amani’s cubs have been enjoying having access to the yard next door to their home. They have experienced having a neighbor and have enjoyed investigating a new enclosure. Our new female from South Africa, Sanurra, is their neighbor. She has been very nice to the cubs and enjoys running the fence line with them. Amani’s cubs are now 10 months old and have been enjoying new tasty additions to their diets and have started eating separately. I am still weighing them weekly. They are huge! Ashaki the largest male now weighs 30 kilograms (68 pounds) and Damisi our smallest female weighs 23 kilograms (52 pounds). The other female cub Savanna has learned how to jump on top of the huts so she can get a better view of things. They keep me laughing all day!
