    Look forward to more news of the Semnan facility. Nice to know there is a female with Khoski now.

    You will surely know for the project to be a success further founders are required. Ideally, say 6.4 or so.

    Is there a difference in the breeding strategy of Asiatic cheetahs vs. African plains cheetah? The latter breed mostly in a set up with uneven male attendance ..., e.g. 2.1 or 3.2, so the females have choice of breeding partner?

    I am sure you know all that ....:cool:

    The first goal is to keep the Cheetah in the wild in addition to breeding in captivity is also addressed

    Fine. Just that more recently in particularly South Africa has build up quite some experience with reintroducing cheetah into the wild successfully. There is - I am sure you know - an excellent recent compendium review book on carnivore research and reintroduction.

    I did not know there is a male-female pair in captivity. Captive breeding with African cheetahs shows you need a lot more cats to make breeding work, but here is hoping...

    If they used skin cells from a cheetah in Argentina it is most likely an African Cheetah. What surprises me is that a Chinese newspaper breaks the news.

    I am glad they finally will do so. If anyone would be able to deliver it is Dr Me'marian.
