TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Several new baby animals have arrived at Caldwell Zoo in Tyler.

“This summer has delivered a bounty of “babies” as well as the thrill that comes with new arrivals. Excitement and joy are running wild all across our park,” the zoo said in a statement.

The new additions include three male cheetah cubs born to first-time mother, Orchid.
