When he was still a cub, Shustry (Nimble) starred in Spotted Family. The popular series opens with a scene where Kedrovka leads her cubs out of the den for the first time to feast on deer meat.
Shustry seemed to be the leader of Kedrovka's litter, and even his mother did not always manage to keep him in check. This fearless little guy immediately showed the makings of an excellent hunter. He was the most active of his young siblings, and appeared in camera traps images more than any other cub.
Shustry was named by employees of the VGTRK Radio and Television Broadcasting Company, which worked closely with Land of the Leopard National Park.
