    A trio of small and mighty black-footed kittens are now on display at the Philadelphia Zoo.

    Rhaegal, Viseron, and Drogon were the very first black-footed cats born at the Zoo.

    The black-footed kittens are a species of wild cat and their native habitats range from Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

    They are known as the smallest cats in world and typically weigh no more than 4 lbs.

    The siblings were born in April to eight-year-old parents, Ascari and Aza.

    The tiny kitties feast on a commercial raw meat fix, but they love snacks like crickets and spiders too.   Although they aren’t great climbers like the traditional cat, they act as skilled diggers when searching for insects.

    These charming felines can be found in the Carnivore Kingdom section of the zoo.
