Of the Five Aussie Cheetah Cubs

The public is getting a first chance to see five cheetah cubs born in captivity at an Australian zoo.

A zoo near Adelaide, Australia announced the birth of five cheetah cubs on Tuesday. The cubs were born in October 2012 at Monarto Zoo but the announcement was delayed to give the cubs time to grow and settle into their new home. (Jan. 15)
