7 Baby Cheetahs Born at Metro Richmond

"This is a very special birth to us because not only is it a big boost for cheetah conservation by increasing the captive population, but also a cheetah having 7 cubs at once only happens 1% of the time!"

I am SO excited to see this news! I had absolutely no idea that there was such a huge event that happened! I can't believe this happened!

"All 7 cubs have had several checkups and their first set of shots. They are in great health and growing fast. Vaila and cubs are currently in our cheetah breeding facility and are not on exhibit; however, we plan to move them into the zoo sometime in March. We will make an announcement when they can be seen on exhibit."
