One of the cheetah cubs born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo's facility in Front Royal, Virginia, ventured beyond its next box yesterday and explored the den it shares with its foster mother and foster sibling. The older cub, a male, was born on Dec. 6, 2010 to Amani. Because mothers that have only one cub cannot produce enough milk, Amani's cub was placed with Zazi, an experienced mother who gave birth to a female cub on Dec. 16, 2010. Both cubs are thriving under Zazi's care. There are currently no plans to bring the cubs to the Zoo's campus in Washington, D.C.
