Rosalie the Cheetah

 Rosalie the cheetah at the National Zoo gave birth to five cubs on Tuesday, and now you can watch them on the cub’s camera! 

Did you know that cheetah cubs chirp when they are looking for their mom, or when they are hungry or cold?

You may also hear the cubs and Rosalie purring.

Rosalie licks her cubs to clean and groom them. She has to do this right after birth and will continue to groom them regularly as they grow.
