This afternoon, Busch Gardens pulled a fast one and announced two new additions to the park –– a pair of baby cheetahs. 

The two fuzzy brothers were born on October 14, says park spokeswoman Rebecca Romzek, and will occasionally make appearances at the Animal Care Center. 

Romzek says the cubs have yet to be named, and there’s currently no set date for when they will debut at the park's cheetah habitat, but fans can follow Busch Garden's social media channels for additional updates.
