Squish Of The Day: Cheetah Cubs Born At National Zoo

Oh, hello. Were you trying to get something done today? Too bad, because I’ve now thwarted your attempt at productivity with this too cute for words pic of a couple of baby cheetahs just born at the Smithsonian National Zoo. These little guys are the surviving two of the four that were born to their mama in late April. Sadly, their other brother and sister didn’t make it. Right now, they’re being hand-raised by zookeepers until they believe they can thrive on their own. That’s important, because cheetahs are considered an endangered species — between 8,000 and 12,000 are believed to exist in the wild. [Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute]
