Fossil Rim Wildlife Centre is proud to announce the birth of three new cheetah cubs. The litter was born on 12 October 2013 and consisted of one male and two females. All appear to be in good health.
Their mother, Gracie, is a first-time mother who has proved to be a natural at taking care of her young. The father is Bruce, an 8-year-old male born and hand-raised at Fossil Rim. This was his first litter of cubs and animal care staff is pleasantly surprised by his ability to reproduce; this is uncommon for hand-raised males. Bruce and his brother Moose were pulled from their mom for hand-raising due to illness at a young age.
