Spotlight on: Gabby the cheetah


Gabby is a female cheetah who was born at the Centre on 23 May 2007.

She was very recently adopted by ‘Admiral’ and Mrs Lopez.

Gabby has a very calm personality, and is a wonderful mother – having raised 8 cubs. She is usually very shy, except on feeding day. While she will rarely come up to the curators, when she is given attention she loves it. She does not enjoy straying from her usual routine and because of this, trying to do anything ‘different’ – like giving her Frontline (for ticks and fleas) – can prove to be quite an ordeal!

Gabby likes to hide her bone when she is done eating – at the expense of the curators!
