      Where are the cubs now?

      One is still at Twycross with the father Diesel but not sure about the 2nd. Once a suitable female can be found either Diesel or the remaining cub will leave the collection.

      The second died (i think).

      I am I correct in thinking there are Two males at Twycross at the moment? Are there any plans to bring in a female any time soon?
    • Nisha

      Yes Diesel and 1 of the the two male cubs born in 2007 are both currently at Twycross. As for a female it's up to the studbook co-ordinator but as there's a shortage of females at the moment it doesn't look likely. Either Diesel or his son will have to go before a female can be bought in.
