Mephisto, the Cheetah at WHF

From WHF web site: Mephisto was born at Safari de Peaugres in France, one of three brothers, his brothers are called Mystic and Manu. He arrived at WHF on the 31st January 2008.


Mephisto is part of the European Endangered Species Breeding programme and was sent to our friends at Paradise Wildlife Park to be a new partner for Xana their female cheetah. Mephisto did not settle well with the female, maybe because he is a little young however as we have the benefit of two cheetah enclosures at WHF and currently only have one cheetah, Pepo, it was decided that Mephisto should come to Kent for a few months to grow up a little and perhaps learn something of cheetah life from Pepo.
