The cubs are becoming more and more active each day and this means they are using a lot of energy, they are just starting to try the meat that is fed to Sveta and yesterday they both were trying a piece of rabbit.
This will come as a welcome relief to Sveta as their baby teeth will be through the gums by now and are probably very sharp.
This morning the cubs were well hidden in the paddock and it took a few circuits of the enclosure to find them in the reeds by the pond whilst Kuzma and Sveta were eating their first feed of the day in the house. This is not unusual and is exactly what would happen in the wild, adult females would leave their cubs in a secluded location while they went off hunting.
