The Charlotte Observer - - Front Page - As­so­ci­ated Press

Three chee­tah cubs have made their pub­lic de­but at a zoo in the Ger­man city of Muen­ster, just over a month af­ter they were born.

Mother Isantya kept a close watch on the three fe­male cubs as they took their first steps in their out­side en­clo­sure Fri­day.

The cubs were born Oct. 4. They are the first off­spring of Isantya, who moved to Muen­ster from Paign­ton, Eng­land, last year. Fa­ther Jabari, who ar­rived from Salzburg in 2011, al­ready has sev­eral young.

The zoo in Muen­ster is well known for suc­cess­ful chee­tah breed­ing. About 50 of the en­dan­gered an­i­mals were born in the zoo since the 1970s.
