OMG how bloody cute are they?

Four of these beautiful little cheetah cubs have been born in Fota Wildlife Park to their mother Nimpy and father Claude.

They are Northern Cheetahs which are considered ‘vulnerable’ on the International Union for Conservation of Nature ‘Red List’ and only around 500 exist in the wild.

Two males and two female cubs were born and they are calling on the public for name suggestions. That’s us...
