A new Companion for a Baby Cheetah
An unprecedented event occurred at the zoo Bush. The fact that the young cheetah, which was raised from the cradle to the zoo keepers, a new friend.
This friend was a puppy, and the kids got along well with each other. As the cheetah kitten for a long time did not know other friends besides the people who cared about him, it became necessary to find a way to develop his social skills.
So there was a solution sat down beside him a dog breed Labrador. Both animals were very similar in character, playful and very funny, with the result that today they are having a great time together.
I must say that this experiment is to share a room to the other kind of individual cheetahs was the first for the zoo.
And in general, these solutions are very rare. Curator Tom Smith explained why it was so decided. According to him, dogs, and cheetahs are very similar to the structure of society, so they are easy to find a common language.
For both kids such a friendship would be beneficial, as well as help them to properly adapt to the society of his fellows after some time.
And yesterday in the lives of both babies was a momentous event – the names of the animals were selected, with a very unusual way.
The names of selected zoo visitors, and as a result of a cheetah named Kasi and Labrador Mtani. In Swahili these names mean “close and loyal friends.” Perhaps in the future, this experiment will be indicative and will be widely used in zoos.
I would like to remind about the experiment at the Leningrad Zoo … when the cat hoisted to the trot … and they still live in perfect harmony … what I had to see for yourself
