The Dallas Zoo has brought in a special playmate for their two new cheetah cubs. Amani is a Labrador Retriever puppy who will live with the cheetahs, Winspear and Kamau, and grow up with them. Why? To keep them in line! "Zoological experts have found that because dogs are naturally comfortable in public settings, Amani will provide a calming influence for the cubs, as well as another playmate as they grow to adulthood," the zoo said in a statement. In fact, the puppy's name comes from the Swahili word for "peace," in honor of its role as peacekeeper. Of course, Amani, Kamau and Winspear won't think of themselves in terms of those roles. They'll just be BFF (we hope).
