Busch Gardens' animal care team has something new keeping them up at night -- a four-week-old baby cheetah that requires regular feedings and 24-hour care. The new cub was born at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens to a mother who wasn't able to care for him. When zoo keepers saw that the baby was not eating and having trouble gaining weight, they made the decision to hand-raise him. Now, at a little more than two pounds, the cub is eating well, getting stronger and eagerly exploring his new home. Once he is old enough, he will join the group of cheetahs living in Cheetah Run, the innovative new habitat alongside the Cheetah Hunt launch coaster. Upon reaching maturity, he may also become an important part of Busch Gardens' plans for a cheetah breeding program that will help boost the population of these critically endangered animals. Only approximately 12,400 cheetahs remain in the wild.
