The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has been releasing regular videos amid the shutdown, one of which recently featured the two adorable fuzzballs pictured

As someone with young children, I miss the zoo. As a human being, I miss the awesomeness that is the okapi. But until the zoo starts releasing the daily okapi updates that the public demands, we'll have to make due with clips featuring a running selection of lesser beasts, including the (admittedly adorable) cheetah cubs seen below.

The videos are designed to be educational, so if you're looking for a temporary distraction that might teach your homebound kiddos a thing or two, these are a nice fallback. For the rest of us, it's just nice to watch a couple of critters who have no concept of social distancing frolic for a few carefree minutes.
