RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- The now famous cheetah cubs at the Metro Richmond Zoo got a live 6-week-check-up Monday morning- and all five were reported perfectly healthy.
The cubs have hundreds of thousands of fans world-wide on the now popular cheetah-cam.
In the last few weeks, the cubs have grown a little bit more feisty. It was a game of catch the cheetah for the team at the Metro Richmond Zoo, as the cheetahs dodged them and squealed through the check-up.
They're growing up- finding their voices and their claws.
"The last few times we put them in a box and they kept jumping out so we figured we would get a top this time because they're so active," explained Jim Andelin with the Metro Richmond Zoo.
