Cheetah Baby Cub makes Debut at San Diego Zoo





deanhills
Quite something. A cheetah baby cub born in captivity at the San Diego Zoo. I sort have mixed feeling about this. On the one hand it is at least protected from human predators, but on the other hand captivity has to be working completely against its nature. How on earth is it going to run those speeds that cheetah's are so famous for?

Very cute kitty! You asked about running. Did you see the PBS show Nature where a man raised two cheetahs from kittens after their mother was killed. As they grew, he developed different (faster) targets for them to chase. His goal was to release them back into the wild which he did.
I don't know what the San Diego Zoo's plans are for this one.

Just give them a big pen?
Cheetahs run fast, but not over long distances... They tire quickly.

True, but a long enough distance however that requires larger space than what they are confined in. Mostly to chase their prey.
