Cheetah Cub Update: Wild Wednesday

My husband and I enjoyed a trip to the National Zoo this week and found the cheetah cubs to be highly active and entertaining. They also appear to have grown quite a bit in the last few weeks (you can see previous photos here and here). I hope you enjoy our pictures of their childlike antics.

My husband got this great shot of one of the cheetah cubs holding something (bark?) in it's mouth while running around in its habitat. So cute! (PS You should be able to enlarge the picture by clicking on it.)

He also snapped this playful paw in face photo of the two cheetah cubs playing.

They two baby cheetahs already zoom around speedily and appeared to have a great time chasing each other up and down the hills, through the grass and around the trees in their habitat.

Hope you enjoyed our wild Wednesday photos. May God bless you!
