    It was a risk. But it was a calculated risk, and it paid off. Two baby cheetahs were recently born to two separate mothers at the Smithsonian National Zoo, and while it was a time to rejoice, zoologists were also concerned.

    According to a Today Show report, when a mother cheetah births just one cub, there is a danger that she won't produce enough milk, and then the cub will be neglected. In order to avoid this situation from happening, zoologists decided to make one mother responsible for both cubs, in an act known as "cross-fostering."

    There was a chance that upon meeting an unknown cub, the mother would injure him. But instead, the video shows that the mother embraced her new cub, caring for him immediately.

    While these cubs are in good hands, the cheetah population as a whole is in serious decline due to hunting and habitat destruction.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
