Seven cute cheetah cubs have been born at Whipsnade Zoo.
The litter of Northern Cheetah cubs have spent their first weeks tucked up behind the scenes with their mum Dubai.
At 12-weeks-old the playful youngsters are just beginning to develop their own personalities, with keepers spotting them climbing on rocks and chasing each other in the summer sunshine, becoming more adventurous by the day.
Senior keeper Marie Brown said: "Mum is very patient with them all and is doing a great job of bringing them up."
The cubs are the second litter of Northern Cheetah to be born at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
The septuplets' birth comes two years after Dubai gave birth to her first cubs, which were the first litter of Northern cheetah cubs ever born in the UK.
