Brb, just crying at their cute little faces

These five cubs were born back in August, and they now need names. They are a Northern Cheetah subspecies, which is an endangered species. According to the Fota website, "there are currently less than 800 left in the wild."

There are three female cubs and two male and we are beyond obsessed with them. They were born to parents Grainne and Archie in the park - according to the website a total of 238 cubs have been born there since 1984. Grainne gave birth to a litter last year, while Archie is a first time dad.

So what names do you think will best suit these little cheetah cubs? Submit your thoughts on the Fota Wildlife Park website.
