These two cheetah cub sisters, born on September 1, are being hand raised by the staff at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, because their mother was unsuccessful in raising her two previous litters. Eileen Neff, lead keeper of the cubs said,
"Every baby's different, but these cheetahs really seem to be developing quickly in our eyes. They are great eaters and they started playing when they were just three or four days old. They could barely walk at that time, so it was pretty interesting seeing them tumbling around with each other."
Like all animal ambassador cheetahs at the San Diego Zoo, these cubs will be paired with domestic dogs as companions, which keeps them calm and well socialized. Read more about the San Diego Zoo's cheetahs here. Via Zooborns.
