A cheetah mother has been given a high-tech baby monitor to help keep an eye on her five newborn cubs.

Salome (which means peace), a cheetah mom at the Hoedpsruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC), gave birth to five cubs on the evening of Friday April 17.

Unfortunately, due to three days of bad weather, the camera ran out of solar power during the birth on Friday April 17. But the good news is Salome’s five cubs are doing great!

The staff at HESC installed a state of the art baby monitor/CCTV camera for Salome with HD resolution, sound and night vision so that they can keep a close eye on her and her five cubs and make sure everything is going well.

The rest of us wont be left out either, as HESC has partnered with africam.com to stream the baby monitor live on the web. Viewers can check in on the five baby cheetahs 24/7 to watch them grow, play and learn to walk in the days to come.
