Cheetah and dog sleepover a roaring success

United States, Cincinnati
November 05, 2019 at 18:15 GMT +00:00 · Published

A cheetah cub and a dog enjoyed each other's company during a sleepover at Cincinnati Zoo, Ohio, on Saturday.

Baby cheetah Kris and rescue dog Remus, an unlikely duo, were snuggled up and even grooming each other.

The pair are around the same age and are part of the zoos dog-cheetah pairing, that was originally set up to offer support for single cubs.

It is expected that the duo will stay together for around two years, when cheetahs normally separate from family and become solitary by nature.
