Cheetah cubs meet their public

MEET the first ever cheetah cubs to be born at West Midland Safari Park in its 41-year history.

The cute trio Cody, Cairo and Chloe arrived on March 23 to first-time mum Epezi.

And now at 16 weeks old the cubs have been out to face visitors for the first time after completing their worming and vaccination programme.

They have also been busy exploring the caves and rocks that form part of the what is the UK’s largest drive-by cheeta reserve and home to 10, including the first two to arrive there, brothers Munya and Bulika, and the latest arrivals’ dad Cheetor.

Lawrence Bates, head of carnivores at the safari park, said, “These cubs really are double trouble plus one for mum.

“Whilst they are still only babies they have already developed stalking skills and like to chase anything that moves.”
