Cheetah - Time to leave home










Mother and Son seen on Safari last week. You may be able to tell from the picture that Mum is pregnant, which means that very soon her son will be pushed out.
He's been taught well, and has been hunting with his mother for a while now, but as yet is untested on his own.
Life without Mum will be tough, he has leopard, hyena and lion to avoid as well as establishing himself on the reserve, where other male cheetah are present.
We'll be keeping an eye out for him on safari over the next few months and we'll see how he fares. As seen below he is very relaxed:
