Cheetah and cubs

Super!

While in Kenya, I found a little cheetah family: A mother and her 5 cubs (only a few weeks old).

Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus, Gu├ępard, Guepardo), Masai Mara, Kenya, September 2008.

Unfortunately, from what I heard, three of the cubs have been killed by hyenas a few days after we left Kenya. Wonderful little furry animals are not only cute; They are a prey for larger less nice predators.

The other cubs will grow up to become very fast killers, too.
