Watch the Dallas Zoo's Aggressively Adorable New Cheetah Cubs Frolic

The Dallas Zoo released video footage of its 2-month-old cheetah cubs, named Winspear and Kamau. Notwithstanding the fact that one of them is the namesake of a border casino opera house, this is a big deal. Cheetahs are notoriously difficult to breed in captivity. They often suffer health problems, and their curious social structure -- the females are loners while males tend to live in social groups -- means these cubs are special.

Now, enjoy watching them cuddle, wrestle and doze.
