Serengeti Dreaming


Oh no!! Another Kitty photo?  Ran across this one when I was going through my Serengeti images and I thought I should do something with it as I don’t recall seeing many photos of Cheetahs in this position.  This female spent hours with us one afternoon (causing us to miss lunch!) including a stroll or two on top of our vehicle.  This was a little “time out” see took in the grass before she caught the scent of a male cheetah heading our way.

This is also kind of a neat shot to illustrate the fact that the cheetah is the only big cat that can’t retract their claws.  They are out all the time to act as “spikes” when the cheetah makes a charge at its prey.

    • Thanks Anna – I really liked the way this came out – next time you’re over, you can see it hanging in the dining room!
