As a species, cheetahs tend to be shy, introverted and a little skittish. And as loyal Cheetah Cub Cam viewers are probably aware, mother cheetahs sometimes move their cubs to a new location if they feel like that’s what they need to do. It’s all part of being a responsible cheetah mom.
We’re pleased to report that Echo and her five cubs are doing great… in an off-cam den. Last week, Echo moved her kits to a new den space in her habitat area, where they’ve been living since Sept. 29.
Fortunately, the 3-week-old cubs are thriving. Each of them—three males and two females—are active and playful, and they appear comfortable and healthy. And, they’re really mobile for their age! Echo is doing an excellent job. We’re hopeful they’ll be back in the webcam den soon.
