The cheetah cubs at Chester Zoo are one year old today!

Here are a few shots of them at about a month old.

You can see the fluffy mantle running down their backs. This mantle is thought to camouflage the cubs in grass, concealing them from predators.

I’ll add some more shots of them a bit older later in the week…

Squee!

Nearly camouflaged in his habitat, a polar bear surveys his surroundings. Cold doesn’t bother these Arctic predators: Two layers of fur and thick fat act as superb insulation, even in subzero temperatures.
