BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo just welcomed some new cats to the family.
Two young, female cheetahs on loan from the Fort Worth Zoo are now in Baton Rouge, according to a BREC news release. The cheetahs were born at the San Diego Safari Park in 2015.
Baton Rouge is one of only a few zoos to have cheetahs available for viewing. According to the release, only 25 percent of the top zoos in the United States have the animals.
