Hi there Shane,

Im happy to see the good condition the cheetah is in, surely it is unfortunate to know whe has an injury. At least she can still provide for the cubs.

Thanks for the pics.

Lovely pics of Gertie and her little trio Shane. :)
We saw her regularly over our 3 day stay at Urikaruus as well - you can tell Tracy that on the 29.12 she was not limping at all...:) :)

Caracal, I will certainly convey your message to Tracy - she will be very happy to hear the news - thanks.

KG, I understand that Gus Mills is now in UK writing up his Cheetah research paper so is he still asking visitors to forward their images of cheetah sitings with the associated info. to him ?

The lion Monitoring project is still in its baby shoes, however I will have a chat with the scientists today and see how we could work together to keep you guys updated as well.

THANK YOU very much, Kgalagadi Guru for these good news and THANK YOU very much Shane, for the wonderful pictures!!!

We also took some photos of them when they were lying under a tree left of Urikaruus waterhole (luckily we had unit numer one), but of course they are not so fantastic as yours (they were lying in the shadow...).

It's so good to hear they are doing well!!!

There were four brothers that we sighted at the 14th waterhole that were involved in an excursion with lions and one of the brothers lost his life in Nov 2012, the other three survived however one of the survivals had a broken leg, If anybody has been there since and spooted these cheetahs can you let me know whether this injured cheetah is still around.

Hi Heather

I've asked the mods to move these topics to Arid parks, where you'll most probably get an answer on your questions.
