Puma cub at Tierpark Zoo

Your Morning Awwww Served Up Fresh!

Missoula, a seven week old female puma cub, made her furry debut on Wednesday, May 30th at the Tierpark Zoo in Berlin, Germany.

What makes her debut so special? She is the first successful birth at the zoo in 22 years!

Missoula is currently being hand-reared by human caretakers after zookeepers noticed the mother neglecting to care for her offspring. Her spotted coat will eventually fade and turn a reddish-brown color as she gets older.
