“Doesn’t anybody love us?” “We’re hungry!” “I need burping!” “Well, at least we have each other.” “Alright guys! I guess I am naive enough to think that only humans can be so heartless as to turn away their own children. So, I wonder aloud here again about the whole zoo thing. What do you think? Source.

Cute Baby Cheetah Kitten Mewing. Wolf and tiger cubs brought together to form a unique bond of endangered species.

But, seeing as they were friends since being two weeks old, these litters of wolves and tigers share a unique bond. Separated from their mothers to insure their survival, they are beginning their journey as animal ambassadors at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species - conveniently abbreviated to 'Tigers'. The young timber wolves and Bengal tigers seem unaware that they are supposed to be sworn enemies as they play for the cameras in their South Carolina home. On the prowl: Wolf and Tiger cubs play together at Myrtle Beach South Carolina Zoo. Now aged three months, and sharing the same bottles of milk formula, the 25lb wolf cubs are twice the weight of their tiger bedfellows. The founder of Tigers, Doc Bhagavan, said: 'At the moment the tigers will have a size and weight disadvantage to their canine friends.

Rare Sand Kitten Birth Gives Hope for Conservation. Mother Bobcat with her kitten. 31 Day Old Lion Cub. ZooBorns: Cheetah. Last Monday my ZooBorns' co-founder, Chris Eastland, and I (Andrew Bleiman) made a very special trip to Dallas Zoo to meet their twin Cheetah cubs, Kamau and Winspear.

ZooBorns: Cheetah

We also met their canine companion, a black Lab puppy named, Amani. It's extraordinarily rare that we get to interact, let alone romp, with real-live zoo-borns. However these special cubs are being raised as education animals so socialization with humans, even goofy ZooBorns guys, is part of their regular day. Their puppy friend, Amani, is a calming influence who will also help with these efforts. The cubs were born at Smithsonian's Front Royal Conservation Biology Institute on July 8th.

The feline duo put on quite a display. With wild Cheetah populations hovering somewhere around 10,000, the species is considered vulnerable to extinction. Institutions like Dallas Zoo serve an invaluable role in building empathy and awareness for wildlife conservation. Special thanks to the Dallas Zoo staff that made our visit possible. Tiger kisses.

Cheetah Cub. Amur leopard cub is born in Germany.

The birth of an Amur leopard cub at Germany's Leipzig Zoo is huge news for her species, which is critically endangered.

The cub, a female who hasn't yet been named, was born at the zoo in late June. Amur leopards, native to eastern Russia, parts of China and the Korean Peninsula, have been driven nearly to extinction, primarily as a result of habitat loss and fragmentation. In a period of less than 15 years during the 1970s and '80s, about 80% of its Russian habitat was lost. Another issue facing the species is poaching, since their impressively patterned coats fetch high prices on the black market. Today, it's estimated that fewer than 40 Amur leopards remain in the wild in Russia, and an even smaller number are thought to remain in China.
