Fossil Rim is excited to announce the birth of another litter of 2021 cheetah cubs!

On April 18, “Oshana” gave birth to three cubs. Six weeks old at the time of their birth announcement, the cubs were spending most of the day playing and exploring their yard with their mom. Oshana, an excellent mother in the past, is once again showing her strong maternal skills in raising her cubs.

The three cubs are all males and are named “Ragnar,” “Rollo,” and “Floki,” after characters from the television show Vikings. Oshana and her Vikings are currently in a secluded birthing yard and are not visible to the public. In the coming months after the cubs grow and mature, they will be moved to a larger yard and will be visible along the Gosdin Scenic Drive.

  1. Are they still in a secluded area? We had purchased tickets for our son’s birthday before this announcement because his dream is to see Cheetahs.

    1. Hello, yes cubs always spend the first few months in privacy with their mother. If you are following us on Facebook, I’ll be sure to announce whenever they move to a yard beside the drive. If you are asking about cheetahs in general, there are always some that live along the drive. Each cheetah goes to different yards over time so that they get a change of scenery, which provides enrichment.
