Cheetah cubs in perfect health!

Yesterday, our five adorable Cheetah cubs received their first health check.

During the check-up, the eight-week-old cubs were micro-chipped, received their first round of vaccinations and were given a full body examination.

We’re thrilled to have four little girls and a little boy in perfect health, tipping the scales at about three kilograms each!

The cubs have a bright future ahead as part of the vital breeding program working to secure a future for this amazing species, which is sadly classified as vulnerable to extinction in the wild

The feisty felines will stay in a private den with doting mum, Kesho, for a few more weeks before the family makes their public debut in the near future.
