Baby cheetahs -- fuzzy, grayish-gold cubs with dark spots on their legs and bellies and oversized claws -- make a surprising noise: They chirp. That is, unless they're trying to mark their independence.

This is where humans can excel... in the nurturing department. These cubs are beautiful and the fostering that was done seems to offer the best chance of survival and health.

This is a great story. Years ago, I had 2 cats with kittens born 1 week apart. The "new" mother had trouble feeding hers, so I put a few in the other box. At first, she looked at me and looked at the kittens. Then, she took them.
By the time they were 6-8 weeks old, no one knew who the real mother was. I don't even think the cats did.

Animals get it.

Those little fur balls don't want to stay in their box! How beautiful they are! But I can't say how far I trust the Smithsonian with animals like these. Several years ago there was a controversy reported over how the large mammals in the Smithsonian Museum ended up there. Apparently, the elephants, lions and other large predators on display were killed by a millionaire big game hunter in Africa. As lovely as these Cheetahs are, one has to ask the logical question: what will happen to them?
