On August 12th, Gdansk Zoo’s female cheetah, Vega, gave birth to 5 healthy kittens. This is an extraordinary event, because it is the first birth of this species at the zoo and the second this year among European zoos. The breeding of cheetahs in zoos is very difficult and requires both a large area of enclosure, as well as the experience of zookeepers. This year, after the second attempt, Gdansk succeeded, and after 90 days of gestation, they had new individuals of this endangered species. When they are grown enough to be fully vaccinated, they will be on view to guests along with their mother.
