Tuc is one of our cheetahs at AfriCat’s Rehabilitation Centre.
Tuc and his brother Scamp and his sisters, Savanna and Nip were found on the perimeter fence-line of the Okonjima Nature Reserve (2010). They were observed for a few days until it was obvious there was no mother around and attempts were made to catch them. They were around three months old when they came to AfriCat. Tuc is the largest male in the group.
