TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The Toledo Zoo says three male cheetahs are now on exhibit after completing a quarantine period.

The cheetahs, about a year and a half old and still unnamed, were born at the Cincinnati Zoo.

The Toledo Zoo’s previous cheetahs, named Moja and Amani, were transferred to San Diego Safari Park in hopes they successfully pair with a female cheetah there.

The zoo says its three new cats can be viewed from the pedestrian bridge ramp entrance to the zoo’s historic side.

Cheetahs can run up to 70 mph in short bursts during hunts. They’re listed as a vulnerable species with only 7,000 to 10,000 left in the wild.
