    On August 3, the Prague Zoo reported about its new edition, five recently born cheetah cubs! The quintuplets – three males and two female – have survived the most critical period after their birth and are doing well. Their mom, 6-year-old Savannah, is taking good care of them.

    In this video, Savannah is seen walking with her cubs in the Prague Zoo. It is her second litter; the cubs are less than three months old and have not yet been named. Visitors will have the first chance to see them on August 26.

    Cheetahs, known as the fastest land-animal on the planet, are very vulnerable at an early age. More than half of their cubs die in the first year; therefore, specialists at the zoo closely monitor their health.

However, there are people who love exotic animals like spiders, snakes, and other unusual pets. Some time ago, otters also joined the ranks of unusual pets.
