Fota Wildlife Park welcomes the arrival of 4 adorable cheetah cubs


Fota Wildlife Park has announced the arrival of four adorable baby cheetah cubs. 

The six-week-old cubs were born back in November to proud parents Nimpy and Claude

The cubs do not have names yet, and the Cork wildlife attraction is asking the public to help name the cubs.

Fota Wildlife Park is delighted to have four new cubs born in such a vulnerable wild species. 

Kelly Lambe, Lead Ranger said 'We are delighted to welcome four new cheetah cubs to Fota Wildlife Park as the Northern Cheetah is considered vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.'

'Cheetahs face many threats to their population including the conversion of their natural habitat, grasslands, to agricultural zones, conflict with humans and competition for food with other large predators such as lions, leopards and hyenas.'
