Seven Cheetah Cubs Are Healthy and Growing

  • a litter of cheetah cubs sits in the grass

Our seven cubs are thriving! They received a clean bill of health at their first veterinary exam, and we confirmed that there are two male and five female cubs in the litter. Born in July, the cubs are now 8 weeks old and have started eating meat.

Cheetah cubs normally begin eating meat between 6 and 7 weeks of age, and Erin’s cubs appear to greatly enjoy it. Now that they are eating meat, their daily weights will quickly increase. We weigh the cubs every week to track their growth.
