Penguin here.

This picture of a cheetah family is too cute for words. The mother looks very protective over her tiny little offspring as they snuggle and sleep, forming a comfy ball of softness.
Here’s an interesting fact about cheetahs. According to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park, female cheetahs live alone, except when they’re raising their cubs. They also rarely interact with other cheetahs, except when they’re ready to mate. Meanwhile, male cheetahs live in groups called coalitions which are usually formed of male siblings. If you’re interesting in more cheetah facts, you should definitely visit the Smithsonian page about it.
