A 5-year-old cheetah named Babs has given birth to three cubs, two males and one female, earlier this month at a Missouri zoo.
‘These cheetah triplets are thriving!’ and ADORABLE.
Mom cheetah Babs, was “bred based on breeding recommendations by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums Species Survival Plan,” the zoo explained.
They also added that the goal of the effort is to “maintain a robust genetic pool, especially for endangered animals such as cheetahs.“
According to the birth announcement, Babs had a closely-monitored pregnancy and wasn’t showing any noticeable signs of labor late into her term, prompting caregivers to pursue a c-section.
