Cheetah Background Information
The modern cheetah population can be traced back to a single African
group of 500 animals that survived the last ice age. Genetically, this means
all living cheetahs are as close as identical twins.
They are notoriously difficult to breed in captivity because the female
needs to be chased by several males before she can ovulate.
Akbar the Great, the 16th-century Mogul emperor, kept more than 1,000
cheetahs but managed only one litter.
The next cheetah born in captivity wasn't until 1956.
