Animals become ill, die or are moved to other accommodations for breeding or other reasons. In the event that it is necessary, we may transfer your sponsorship to another suitable animal.

· Adorable first baby photo of the cubs
· Exclusive opportunity for first look at the twins before their public debut
· Cub baby photo (when available – they are still in their cozy den with mom Crystal!)
