When a new litter of cheetahs is added to the studbook, the value of different breeding pairs can change. Cheetahs Echo and Scotty are both first-time parents, so their cubs will likely hold a valuable place in the genetics of our cheetah population. While the cubs are too young to breed this season, it’s important that we include them in our plans for the future.
For now, Jabari, Hasani, Erindi and Amabala are all enjoying new and different lookout spots around their yard! We recently introduced them to a hammock bed that is made with an interwoven fire hose. The beds give the cheetahs some height, so they can see out a bit farther. They also provide a comfortable place to lay in the sun, as well as some shade underneath on hot days.
