The Metro Richmond Zoo welcomed the five cubs on October 6. They are only the third litter born in the United States this year, and the first ever for the Metro Richmond Zoo.

The cubs - 3 males and 2 females - were born to Lana, a 4-year-old first-time mom, and Kitu, a 5-year-old first-time dad, at the zoo's new cheetah breeding center.

Cheetahs have been classified as endangered with the wild population in drastic decline. Cheetah numbers have dwindled 90% to just over 10,000 animals in small pocketed areas in Africa.
