The cubs' parents are not gentle, unlike Jack, so they have to stay in an enclosure. But they can be approached with due care. Daddy is not as sociable as his mate. One of the staff members playing with Jack. Jack playing with can.

Jack & The Snäkes. Markus & staff. The children are currently here on school holidays. Their teacher in Windhoek told them to bring something back which is of general interest. They captured a scorpion, one of the really venomous kind. If this is suitable for school ???
