What is a cheetah cub called?
i. Baby cheetahs are called cubs and are usually born in litters of three to five.
They are blind at birth and are covered with a thick coat of fur, called a mantle, which helps to protect them from predators.
Why cheetah cubs look like honey badger?
As cubs, cheetahs have the same reverse-countershading color pattern and are roughly the same size.
Due to this conspicuous coloration, potential predators like lions and birds of prey are less likely to hunt cheetah cubs, as from a distance they appear to be honey badgers.
How much does a cheetah cub cost? These iconic wild cats exemplify grace, agility, ferociousness, and speed. Only sold on the black market, a cheetah cub can put you under $1000 to $2000.
You need more than just a cage to hold them in, the “King of Race Tracks” needs space to roam. The upkeep of this pet is expensive.
