Persian cheetah cub born in captivity doing well, turns 4 months old

After the death of two of the three Asiatic cheetah cubs born in captivity in Iran, the third sibling, named Pirooz or victor, is now four months old, living in the capital Tehran’s Pardisan wildlife park.

The mother of the litter, named Iran, gave birth to the three cubs on May 1 in the first birth of its kind in captivity.

The first cub died apparently from “congenital malformation of the left lung” and the second offspring died two weeks later.

Officials took extra measures and put the third cub in intensive care to prevent the repeat of the past two experiences.

The photos of the cub are available here:
