Miami Zoo Welcomes Two Young Male Cheetahs from South Africa

Zoo Miami’s, Ron Magill and Willy Cotto unload two nine-month old Cheetahs as they arrive at a quarantine facility at Zoo Miami on November 29, 2012 in Miami, Florida. The two sub-adult brothers who arrived today were captive-born on March 6th of this year at the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre just outside of Pretoria South Africa. The Cheetahs after being monitored and examined for a minimum of 30 days to insure that they are healthy and stable, will be featured in Zoo Miami’s Wildlife Show at the newly constructed amphitheater and will continue the work of Zoo Miami’s Cheetah Ambassador Program by making appearances off zoo grounds at a variety of venues including schools and civic organizations.
