Kibwe & Beshte

Kibwe and Beshte were born in March 2018 and are brothers to Kiara.  Unfortunately their mother, Mufasa, was a first time mom and had a very big litter.  Kibwe, Beshte and Kiara were very neglected so we had to intervene to save them.

Their personalities are so different and they each have their favorite guide that feeds them and does enrichment with them.  As you can see from their pictures, Kibwe loves to run and Beshte loves to laze around.
