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