The Cincinnati Zoo recently relocated their newest cheetah cub to the nursery after it's mother started ignoring it. Watch as the playful little girl unleashes a furious attack on her blanket in this video.
Two Eurasian lynx were born March 26th at the Cincinnati Zoo to parents “Birk” and “Nahlin”. The Eurasian lynx is uncommon in U.S. zoos and the Cincinnati Zoo is excited to be home to the newest additions. ZooBorns is proud to welcome the pair as the first of their kind to be featured on our site.

The Zoo has also welcomed a baby, takin, okapi, golden head lion tamarin, a Bennet’s wallaby, galapagos tortoises, an Angolan python, a green tree python, and MORE... All these ZooBorns can be seen at the Zoo's "Zoo Babies" event which runs from May 9th to May 24th.
ZooBorns introduced you to a tiny Tommy T. back in December, when he was just a cuddly cheetah cub at the Cincinnati Zoo. A week later, we shared pics of Tommy with his new playpal, Pow Wow the Anatolian shepherd puppy. Well both have grown a lot since then, but they have certainly not outgrown a vigorous wrestling match.
Looks like this round goes to Tommy T!
Special thanks to Jason B for the fantastic series of pics.
The Cincinnati Zoo is abuzz about two new friends. Tommy T., the Zoo's star cheetah cub, and Pow Wow, the Anatolian Guard Dog puppy, are like two peas in a pod. Cheetah Days, the adorable new blog has all the pics to prove it.
This strange but captivating friend is a baby Potto. The Cincnnati Zoo's collection ranges far and wide (including the oddly loveable bearcat!) and never disappoints. Pottos inhabit the canopy of rain forests in tropical Africa, from Guinea to Kenya and Uganda into the north of the Democratic Republic of Congo. They are nocturnal and arboreal, sleeping during the day in the leaves and almost never descending from the trees.
Earlier this year, the Cincinnati Zoo welcomed a bearcat, or Binturong, back to its collection for the first time in four years. And rightly so, the University of Cincinnati's mascot is none other than this unusual furry friend.
The baby bearcat is pictured here at 3 months old.
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is excited to announce the birth of three cheetah cubs, born and bred locally at the Cincinnati Zoo’s regional cheetah breeding facility (Mast Farm), in Clermont County, Ohio.
Last year the Cincinnati Zoo welcomed two litters of Red River Hogs. Endangered in their native Africa, the Red River Hog, also know as the Bush Pig, inhabits a diverse range of habitats, from rainforests to savannah and mountains. Like most pigs, they are social animal and live in herds of 6-20 members.
