Five Cheetah Cubs Born at Metro Richmond Zoo
The Metro Richmond Zoo in Moseley, Va., is now the happy home to five adorable new baby cheetah cubs. The zoo announced Monday the cubs were born Oct. 6 to their 4-year-old mother, Lana, and their 5-year-old father, Kitu, at the zoo’s cheetah breeding center. "It'll be fun to watch them and mom," Metro Richmond Zoo Director Jim Andelin told ABC affiliate, WRIC . "The cubs are not moving very far but as they start to explore they're going to give her fits when five different directions those cubs go." These cheetah cubs are the first litter ever born at this zoo and only the third litter born this year in the entire United States.
