Echo is a 5-year-old cheetah living at SCBI in Front Royal, Virginia. She previously lived at White Oak Conservation Center in Florida and joined the SCBI breeding program in June 2016. She is a very feisty and confident female.
This is Echo’s first pregnancy. Keepers have high hopes for her as a cheetah mom, as she was raised by her own cheetah mom without any human intervention. This means she has a good chance of having learned cheetah-mom behaviors from the best teacher — her mom!
