On April 8, 2014, Philadelphia Zoo welcomed three new little ones to their home as a Black-footed Cat named Aza gave birth a lovable litter of cats. The main ever Black-footed Cats ever conceived at the zoo, the little cats, named Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion, are small little animals endemic to southern Africa. (Love the Game of Thrones inspired names!) One of the smallest wild cat species in the world, a fully grown adult male weighs on average 4.2 pounds while a female weighs around 2.9 pounds. The cushions and underparts of their feet are black, hence giving them their name.
The Philadelphia Zoo imparted these heart-dissolving, off camera photographs that show the little cats accepting their check-ups. Routine systems incorporate inoculations, weighing and getting color stamped (or commented) so the attendants can let them know separated from a distance. Drogon, seen in the first photograph (above), is the embodiment of charm with his immense eyes and sweet gaze. At eight weeks old, he weighed only 27 ounces, or 1.7 pounds.
