p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Living together in the Serengeti #7


We came upon a female cheetah with two yearlings.
As we watched, Momma spied a few impalas walking through the brush.
1. Beginning the stalk, her babies followed behind. Then Momma sprinted away.
All the action happened out of our view. Later, we found her and she had missed.
2. The male yearling running after his ma.
3. Unable to find her.
4. Unable to find her two babies.
After half an hour of waiting, we drove away. The twins were together, but had not found their mother.
5. Meanwhile- back at camp- another shot of a Maasai man at the village.

Well you might not have seen leopard but your cheetah shots are wonderful...btw, the President of Botswana was "attacked" by a cheetah today...a couple of stitches were needed.
Nice Charlie

Thanks Lil, Birdie, Roger, Ken Collett, Eric, KenMunroe, Ron and Ted.
As we were watching the babies searching for Mom, a male adult Thompson's gazelle literally ran into them. The cheetahs attacked and got the Tommy to the ground, but didn't know how to apply the kill. After a few seconds of wild-ass struggling, the gazelle got to its feet and fled- apparently unhurt.
As we left the area our guide said the three cheetahs would almost certainly get together within a few hours. Mom was mewing for them, and they for her. The guide also said that the yearlings were in some danger, but they could easily outrun lions or hyenas.
Note that our Kenyan guide never BS-ed us about anything- he was just a very good driver/guide, not a PR guy.
Attacked by a cheetah? Wow! That's quite a big deal. There's certainly more to the story, Eric. Can you give me a connection so that I can read more about it. As you know better than I, such an event (regarding cheetahs) is quite rare- if not unique.

Thanks Tim, Socrate and Golfer ().
I've always liked words and photographs that help each other to tell stories.
And since I'm fairly competent- but NOT expert- at both, it makes sense that I should combine the two.
Plus, as a traveler, I like stories of the people and things I see .

Update on the cheetah "attack."
I checked several news sources and they all verified the so-called "attack."
But it wasn't really an attack.
The president was visiting a military installation and they were feeding a captive cheetah. The animal lunged at the president and swiped him in the face with his claws. But cheetah claws are non-retractable, so they are not sharp like other cats; they are more like dog claws.
The president was treated, but it was not necessary for him to go to the hospital.
By his own admission, it was no big deal.
They apparently aren't sure what triggered it, but feeding a wild hunter while it's in a cage is cause for strange behavior under the best of circumstances.
Maybe the cheetah thought the president was going to steal its gruel .
