CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Zoo has introduced one of its newest residents to the public in time for the annual Christmas display of lights.
 
Tommy T, a 3-week-old cheetah cub, has taken up residence in the zoo nursery where he can be viewed during the PNC Festival of Lights through Jan. 4.
 
Visitors can watch him nap, play and drink formula from a bottle.
 
The cub and two brothers were born last month at the zoo’s breeding facility in Clermont County. The other two cubs will eventually go to the Columbus Zoo.
 
The cub’s parents are Purdy, a female from the Columbus Zoo born in South Africa, and Wild Boy, who lives at the Cincinnati Zoo and was rescued as a cub in Namibia in southern Africa.
 
The zoo is building a new exhibit that will allow cheetahs to run as fast as they can in the wild.
