Two new 10 month old baby cubs have arrives at the National Zoo and Aquarium, reports ABC News. The Zoo has received these animals as a part of an international breeding program.

Ms Scott says the Zoo plans to bring in two male cubs later this year and it is hoped the cheetahs will eventually breed.

“Cheetahs in the wild are classified as vulnerable on the threatened species list so it’s very important for us to be part of the breeding program,” she said.

Wow !

The two female cheetah cubs from South Africa did settle inn well.

Good for the canberra zoo, they have done a good job and specially have become one of the major tourist attraction for Canberra. The lodge at the zoo is also gaining quite a bit of traction nationally and even globally.

While I never got to do the meet a cheetah experience at the Canberra zoo, I was actually involved in this blog post which was about the web experience of meet a cheetah
- .

This is actually how i ended up reading this thread.
