Cheetah Cam

The Smithsonian National Zoological Park has installed a streaming webcam in a cheetah's den, so that we can keep an eye on a mother cheetah and two cubs.
Female cheetah Zazi is raising a cub she gave birth to and another mother's cub, both born in December 2010. Cheetahs that give birth to only one cub, called a singleton, cannot produce enough milk to keep the cub alive. The cub born to Amani, a first-time mother, was hand-raised for 13 days before being placed with Zazi, creating a litter of two that will likely help stimulate milk production from Zazi. These cheetahs are at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in Front Royal, Virginia.
