No current Talk conversations about this book. Library descriptions. A photo essay about a cheetah at the Cincinnati Zoo, who is part of the "Cat Ambassador Program" that sends endangered cats to schools to give children a close-up look at animals that need human help to survive.

Hilker raised Angel the cheetah at home, where she lived with her husband and young son, both named Carl. Often, Angel would climb into the back of Hilker’s Chevrolet Chevette, behind the driver’s seat. Carrie, a mountain lion, would hop into the front passenger’s seat. Though a dog and a cheetah might seem an unlikely pair, it’s the fifth such match at the Cincinnati Zoo. The relationship has varied from love at first sight to ‘what is that thing, get it away from me,’ said Cincinnati Zoo's Cat Ambassador Program coordinator and lead trainer Castaneda. In this case, Moose was curious.

The Metro Richmond Zoo has a cheetah cub named Kumbali who was born as the runt of the litter. Severely malnourished, the cub had to be hand-fed and raised by the zookeepers. They also provided him with a rescue puppy named Kago to keep him company and the pair are now inseparable. Kago keeps Kumbali calm and helps relieve the cheetah of his stress. Zoos have been experimenting with the cheetah/puppy pairing for about three decades. It began when zoologists realized that dogs had a calming effect on the big cats

Cathryn Hilker, who founded the Cat Ambassador Program at the Cincinnati Zoo, said in a zoo release that Sarah the cheetah broke the previous world record twice Wednesday with 100-meter runs of . 6 seconds and . 3 seconds, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. Sarah is a wonderful animal and a wonderful symbol of hope for all cheetahs," Hilker said. It's really great for Sarah to have the honor as the fastest in the world, but I also hope this record-breaking run helps to raise awareness of the plight of the cheetah. Sarah's record-setting runs Wednesday were much faster than the human record for a 100-meter run. That record of . 8 seconds currently belongs to Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.

Director of animal health carries out his first cheetah C-section as officials say cubs’ immune systems are not well-developed. The zoo’s director of animal health, Mark Campbell, said it was only the third C-section he has been involved with and his first on a cheetah. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that the three male and two female cubs were born on 8 March at the zoo’s cheetah breeding facility in Clermont County. Just over 50 cheetah cubs have been born there since it opened in 2002.

Five orphaned cheetah cubs have a new companion – an Australian shepherd named Blakely – at the Cincinnati Zoo in the U. The cubs were born on 8 March through a C-section at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden’s Cheetah Breeding Facility. While vets at the zoo hoped the mother, named Willow, would recover from the surgery, the zoo says she was lethargic and lost her appetite. Cheetahs are a fragile species and this difficult birth proved to be too much for her to pull through said Thane Maynard, Director of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden in a news release. Willow was able to contribute to the survival of her species by producing five cheetah cubs. Without the C-section, we likely would have lost.

Recounts in pictures and words the training of Angel for her role as star of the Cincinnati Zoo's "Cat Ambassador Program," a program that exhibits endangered cats at schools to help educate children on the need for animal preservation.

I think "A Cheetah named Angel" is a good book because.. Angel helps Cathryn tell about wild animals and how we can help save Cheetahs,Jaguars Mountain Lions and Snow Leopards. All of these wild animals are endangered species or might become endangered. Meaning...they*re at risk of becoming extinct.
My daughter loves this book
