WATCH: Rare cheetah sextuplets walk for the first time

(NBC News) These sextuplets, four female and two males, were born earlier this year, in September, at the Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem, Netherlands.

According to NBC News, it is relatively rare for cheetahs to give birth to sextuplets. It only happens around 5% of the time but Zookeeper Philip Jansen said their mom Nadie has delivered sextuplets both times she’s given birth.

As of right now, it’s hard to tell the cubs apart. Around six months of age, it will be possible to identify different points and stripes on their fur.
