PLAYTIME ON THE MARA
Cheetah on the right had been playing with one of his brothers on a termite mound (out of the frame) but got bored and decided to dive bomb his other brother, as young cheetahs are want to do. Cheetah on the left was far more interested in taking a bath, but when he saw his brother leaping through the air in his direction, I guess he figured he better join in or be pummeled.
That however was not the end of first cheetah’s mischief making, he turned around and promptly jumped back on the termite mound and bit the first brother on the back.
All in a morning’s fun on the Mara.
Important Note: Today is International Cheetah Day. According to The Last Lions Facbook page
It is estimated that there are fewer than 10 000 of them left and they’re not abundant anywhere. Having disappeared from an astounding 77% of their historical African range, the world’s fastest land mammal is in need of our protection.
