Hi roelfA,
great picture. Usually the cheethas with collars usually have names. Any idea what this ones name is? Looks like a fairly young cheetah to me, so it has probably only recently been collared. Would be interesting to find out more.

you are right wildc :thumbs_up: ... but since Margie and Gus Mills left, no Cheetah was collared... :hmz:
or maybe again a person takes care of them :D
