3 Phoenix Zoo cheetahs beat the heat with a frozen treat

Visitors will be able to see the cheetahs in their habitat and other Zoo residents when it reopens on Sept. 14

PHOENIX — Three cheetah brothers at the Phoenix Zoo are beating the summer heat with a tasty blood-sicle. 

These 5-year-old cats love to nap in the shade and lounge in the cool grass of their habitat in the early morning hours.

Guests will be able to see DeMarco, Boykin and Dirk when the Zoo reopens on Sept. 14. The first 4 days of reopening will be for members only and the general public will be welcomed back on Sept. 19.
