Worked on 4 of our resident cheetahs today – littleC was 1st and he was in good health, however, his sperm quality was low from last year. Kate, one of our cheetah research assistants, was able to bank some sperm in our Genome Recourse Bank (GRB).
One of our resident orphan cheetahs, Bella – had a very abnormal looking stomach so we endoscoped her as her and found alot of grass in her stomach. She will stay in a more controlled camp tomorrow so we can monitor her to make sure she is passing her feces properly.
I worked on a lot of different issues today – a big issue is my travels to the USA next month. I look forward to meeting many cheetah friends when I am in USA.
