Two months after they were born, six baby cheetahs went on display this month at the Burgers Zoo (a.k.a. Koninklijke Burgers' Zoo) in Arnhem, Netherlands. Hard to believe these adorable little big cats will grow up to be the fastest land creatures on the planet.
The sextuplets were born May 24 at the zoo in Arnhem and introduced to visitors July 4.
How typical is such a large brood? Not very. Female cheetahs usually have a litter of three, which stay with their mothers for 18 months to two years, according to National Geographic.
However, the Dutch babies aren't the only six-pack around.
A cheetah named Dubai gave birth to sextuplets in 2012 at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire, England.
The northeastern African cheetah cubs celebrated their first birthday last August with wrapped "gifts" designed to keep them on their toes.
"It’s not often we get to celebrate six birthdays in one day, so we wanted to do something special for the cubs," zookeeper Rosie Scott told the British news website Metro at the time.
"They love investigating new things and had great fun working out how to reach the food inside their presents."Copyright © 2015, CT Now
