In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site. In future posts we will take you along on our personal journey to Save the Animals through our KIDSLOVEANIMALS.com DVD series.

Cheetah Mother Adopts Two Cubs

Did you know that cheetah mothers do not like to raise a single cub? Therefore, when a cheetah gives birth to one cub in captivity, it has to be hand raised by people or adopted by another cheetah who has several cubs of her own.

Click here to read about a cheetah in Texas who adopted two cubs from different mothers.

That's amazing Paul. I didn't know that, but what do the mothers only have one cub? The picture is really lovely. I've never seen a cheetah cub before - they're rally sweet!
