Cheetah cubs go on display at Ohio zoo

Article published Thursday, June 28, 2007

On a drowsy day at the Toledo Zoo’s Cheetah Valley, Shaka supervises her two new cubs, Amani and Moja, as the cubs are introduced to the public.

The cubs were born at the zoo in April and went on exhibit yesterday. Sevenyear- old Shaka was bred to a cheetah at the Cincinnati Zoo last fall. She came to the zoo in June of 2000 from the Hoedspruit Research and Breeding Center in South Africa.

Cheetahs are the world’s fastest mammals, able to run 65 miles an hour. Zoo hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
