Adorable Cheetah Cub Quintuplets

Check out these five adorable cheetah cubs going for their first check-up at the Smithsonian National Zoo, getting weighted and what not. Normally we hate scales, but put a little kitty on one and we melt!

These Five Cheetah cubs were born on May 28, 2011, to six-year-old Amani at the National Zoo’s Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia. Amani gave birth to a single male cub in December 2010. The cubs got their first exam with the zoo’s veterinarians on July 12. The cubs, now seven weeks old, are healthy and thriving, and they’re growing quickly. They now each weigh between four and five pounds.
