The Cincinnati Zoo welcomed Rozi in May, sharing an adorable video on social media to announce the arrival of the new cheetah cub. The Ohio zoo revealed keepers are hand-rearing the female cub because the mother couldn’t care for the newborn.

No clipe, Rozi slowly walks toward the camera before stumbling and giving a soft purr.

Say hello to our newest cheetah ambassador! Radiographs prior to the cub’s birth revealed that the mom, who lives at Wildlife Safari in Oregon, was carrying a single cub,” the Cincinnati Zoo wrote. “When a single cub is born, the mom will not produce enough milk for it to survive. Knowing that the cub would need to be hand-reared, the cheetah Species Survival Plan (SSP) identified Cincinnati Zoo as the best place for this cub to be raised.

Our neonate team will be caring for the female, four-week-old cub behind the scenes, but you can keep up with her progress right here,” the zoo added, noting that it will keep animal fans updated with videos and photos of the cub as she grows. “Once the cub is older, she will be a part of our Cat Ambassador Program (CAP) and join our other running cheetah ambassadors in the Cheetah Encounter.
