Yesterday, Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Biology Institute celebrated their cheetah cubs’ first birthdays!
On April 8, 2020, female cheetah Echo gave birth to four healthy cubs.
The birth was livestreamed on the Zoo’s website.
Cheetah Biologist Adrienne Croiser said of the past year, “I hope you learned a lot about cheetahs along the way.
Cheetahs face a lot of challenges in the wild, but I think that the more people can connect with and come to understand animals in a personal way, the more they feel inspired to take action and be part of the solution.”
