Cheetah cubs are born with all the spots they'll ever have, but when they're tiny those spots are very close together. This makes their fur a darker, ash gray color. They also have a long, silvery strip of fur called a mantle that shield them from bad weather and camouflage them as they hide in the grass so predators don't see them. (Photo | AP)
The zoo in Muenster is well known for the successful cheetah breed, about 50 of the endangered animals were born in the zoo since the seventies. (Photo | AP)
