All About Baby: Put aside the fact that this little kitty may have the best name ever hatched by a zoo -- Sheldon -- before realizing that this medium-sized serval has clawed his way here from sub-Saharan Africa. Sheldon has many-a-playdate on display for public view, yet if you're having a difficult time identifying him amongst the Sumatran tiger cubs he often plays with, just look for his big ears, Sheldon's tell. They can rotate independently and are designed for pinpointing small animals when hunting.
