Public gets first viewing of cheetah cubs at Australian zoo
ADELAIDE, Australia (KABC) -- The public is getting a first chance to see five cheetah cubs born in captivity at an Australian zoo.
There are two males and three females. This is the first successful litter in nearly a decade at Monarto Zoo in Adelaide.
Zookeepers say it's very difficult to breed in captivity, so this is important for the region that the zoo was able to breed again.
The zoo may hold a competition for naming rights.
Cheetahs are the fastest land animal in the world.
