Christa Heidenreich and her veterinary surgeon husband Manfred have achieved with Bagheera and Bunjee something thought almost impossible -- breeding cheetahs in captivity at their first attempt.
Given two South African cubs seven years ago, the German couple retired to Spain with the hope of breeding them, despite being told they were likely to fail.
They chose Spain because it offered a climate where the cheetahs would feel at home and a place with enough land for them to enjoy hunting.
