Cutest Cheetah Cub in the World (3 pics + video)

We've already shown you the cutest Siberian tiger cub in the whole world. Now, we bring you the cutest cheetah cub, Kiburi, who was recently born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Of the 134 cheetahs born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Kiburi, which means proud in Swahili, is the first to be born to two hand-raised parents, Makena and Quint. “Kiburi really loves his bottle,” says senior nursery keeper Sandy Craig. “As soon as he gets a taste of the milk he scarfs it down, then, soon after, he goes back to sleep.” According to National Geographic, cheetahs are considered the fastest mammal on land, reaching speeds of up to 70 mph. In the wild, cheetahs live in regions of Africa and the Middle East.
