Cheetahs Rosalie and Nick are excited to announce the birth of quintuplets. The proud parents welcomed five healthy cheetah cubs on October 12 at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in Front Royal, Virginia, reports Jane Recker of the Washingtonian.

The spotted spawn were born within a span of six hours—5:20, 8:24, 9:42, 10:33 and 11:17 a.m. ET. Rosalie, the five-year-old mother, can be seen caring for her bountiful brood on a live streaming webcam provided by Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute.

“Seeing Rosalie successfully care for this litter—her first—with confidence is very rewarding,” Adrienne Crosier, SCBI’s cheetah reproductive biologist, says in a statement. “Being able to witness the first moments of a cheetah’s life is incredibly special. As webcam viewers watch our cheetah family grow, play and explore their surroundings, we hope the experience brings them joy and helps them feel a deeper connection to this vulnerable species.”
