Beauty Spot

It's easy to spot who's the new star attraction at this zoo in Lodz, Poland.

This adorable two-month-old cheetah cub is being hand reared by keepers after her mum rejected her shortly after she was born.

The youngster - who does not have a name yet - is already nearly 8lbs (3.5 kilos) and thriving after a month in an incubator.

But she seems happy to snuggle down for a cat nap as her new human parents give her a cuddle.

Zoo spokesman Mariusz Zientalski said: "Cheetahs are very difficult to reproduce in captivity. This is the first we've had in 17 years. But because her mother left her, it's up to us to make sure she lives.

"She is very lively, intelligent, and tactile - she loves being cuddled and has adapted to her new conditions very quickly and very well."

"For some reason her mother Zele stopped feeding her and stopped looking after her.

"The cub's life really hung in the balance for a while but she's survived and has really taken to her alternative lifestyle," she added.
