Cheetah Cubs Celebrate Spring's Arrival at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute
Mother Zazi keeps careful watch over her female cub and male foster cub as they play at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, VA., part of the National Zoo.
The cubs, who have not yet received names, were born in December 2010.
Visitors to the Zoo's website can watch the cubs on its Cheetah Cub Cam: nationalzoo.si.edu/Animals/AfricanSavanna/default.cfm#cam.
