Safety Zone

Young Cheetah of just a few weeks old, taking comfort and security from its Mama. The mortality rate of young Cheetahs is extremely high and four out of five do not survive to adulthood. This cub most likely had two or three siblings. When we found this small family, it was the only surviving cub. And it was extremely wary, first hiding in the brush and later staying very close to its mother. Hopefully this caution will secure its survival. February 2, 2017
