Full throttle... Longleat's Cheetah Wilma shows her cubs the speed needed to chase down prey.<br />
<br />
Two cheeky cheetah cubs have proven they were born to run - showing off their impressive speed for the first time.<br />
<br />
The six-month-old rare twins Poppy and Winston, the first cheetahs ever to be born at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, have started developing the hunting skills they would need in the wild.<br />
<br />
Keepers at the wildlife park set up a speeding lure, similar to those used at greyhound races, to put the youngsters through their paces.
