Cheetah Mom at Fossil Rim (Glen Rose, Texas) Takes Care of Her own Three Cubs and 2 others

28 December 2006 at 10:58:35 AM

Pretty amazing story. We went through Fossil Rim a few weeks ago and saw the cheetahs, which are behind some very tall chain metal fences, but didn't know about these little cutie pies.

Exactly 93 days later, on Sept. 30, Cinnabar went into a small shelter in her enclosure and gave birth to three female cubs.

Cheetah mothers can be nervous, high-strung, even dangerous to their cubs if they feel threatened.

"We did nothing for about a week," Stearns said. "We had no radios up here. We didn't drive our trucks. We just walked on pins and needles. We weren't at all sure what kind of mother she would be, and we didn't want to upset her."

The cubs were named Tuli, T.P. and Teensey (the runt).

Nice story that would be. Except there's more to it.

The keepers at the Cincinnati Zoo phoned in October and said they had a cub that had been abandoned. They asked if Fossil Rim would see whether Cinnabar would take him.

Read the resf of the story.
