Cheetah cubs are born after a gestation period of 3 months. There is usually 3-4 cubs born to an adult female at one time. They can not walk for the first week of their life and are very vulnerable. They are closely cared for by their mother until they are 18 months old.
The cheetah is the fastest animal getting up to a speed of 70 miles per hour.
The pictures below were taken in a Cheetah Reserve in South Africa.
