Cheetah cubs, Maggie, Glenn and Wally, and their mother, Roni, have been given access to the exhibit yard at Dickerson Park Zoo. The cubs, born May 2, have been out of public view in order to give them necessary bonding time with their mother.
“Along with access to the exhibit yard, which is visible from the cheetah observation deck, the cubs still have access to their backyard and den,” said zoo spokeswoman Joey Powell. “We want guests to know if the cubs choose to be shy, they may remain in their more familiar backyard, which is out of view. However, they have been having fun exploring their new space.”
Dickerson Park Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and guests may stay in the park one hour after the admission gate closes. General admission is $12 for ages 13 and up; $8 for ages 3-12 and seniors 60+. Kids 2 and under are free.
