Get ready to say AWWWWW!

If you’re not familiar with the LEO Zoological Conservation Center in Greenwich, it is a private sanctuary that has many unique and rare breeds of animals.  Imagine the surprise when workers at the zoo expected a rare five-year-old cheetah named Mona Lisa to give birth to two cubs- but then birthed EIGHT little babies! That litter actually is historic as it ties the record for most births in a single pregnancy by this type of cheetah.  It gets better.  Mona Lisa is a rare king cheetah and the only one in the entire country.  There are only 30 in the world.
