Heathcliffe

Heathcliffe is a stunning King Cheetah, he was born in May 2009 and was hand raised.  He had to have part of his stomach removed when he was about a year old due to eating a chicken bone that splintered.

He absolutely loves attention, especially his enrichment time.  Heathcliffe is the largest cheetah we have on the farm, but in reality he is just a gentle giant with a massive heart.
