A Cheetah Cubs Tail

Post  RMorr50912 on Tue Apr 24, 2012 11:15 pm

I saw a post on FB earlier today. Africam is going to attempt to follow some cheetah cubs from birth to hopeful release to the wild. This is the trailer they are showing



I'm definitely interested in this one and figured you would be too.

What a fantastic find Ronnie. My friend has done some work at Hoedspruit and she loved it. This is a cam I will be watching but sounds like you have to subscribe to the cam so I will check out Africam to find out more. Thanks for the clip Ronnie

At the top of the Video, on the right hand side it says more info click on it, and you will see Subscribe come up, click on that, and register with You Tube, they then send you emails when new video footage has been uploaded.
The new Cam will be on soon, but you can catch up on You Tube if you miss anything
From Africam
In just a few days we will be launching a brand new live streaming camera called "A Cheetah Cub's Tail". This 24/7 channel will follow the lives of a litter of cheetah cubs at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC) from their birth to their hopeful re-introduction into the wild. Our first time mother to be Salome (which means peace) is currently in the HESC maternity ward and is expected to give birth at the end of this month.

OK guys, Salome has entered the Maternity House and the live cam is up and running. She certainly looks uncomfortable and will probably give birth any time now. Stinks that I'm stuck at work for a few more hours but getting a peek in on my lunch break! Hopefully by the time I get off this evening I will have some ittle cubs to look at!

I'm so glad you guys got to see it! The timing was off for me here, but now I'm home and delighted to see three tiny cubs! Thanks for posting the pics, good stuff! I've got the screen open in the background and just heard a lion roar. Nice to know in this case he's not a threat as Salome and the cubs are all sacked out together. I'm sure I'll be watching for the rest of the evening. Hopefully when daylight comes around over there I can get some color pics. They are also saying on FB that they think one might be a King Cheetah, but have to wait for daylight to confirm.



Looks like they passed out suckling!

They have had a couple of feeds, and have been quiet for a while now Ronnie. Its been funny watching them scramble around try to find the right place to feed. Difficult to tell about a King Cheetah in this light, but that would be good to know
