Last year, the Richmond Zoo was blessed by the birth of six – SIX – cheetah cubs. We have all been obsessed with our first view of them, seeing them grown and become individuals, seeing them let loose into their own wild area so we, the public, could see them in all their beauty, grace, and speed.
Last January, after a snow, and during one of their public showings, the cubs were allowed out to play in the snow. Their mom kept careful watch over them. Even though just a couple of months old, they already show their ground eating speed run, their curiosity about the world around them, and again, their incredible beauty.
I hope you all enjoy this brief and rare video of the cheetahs, especially, cheetahs in the snow. Winter’s coming but already, they know about snow and will have few surprises this year.
