Ekoppen absolutely stunning footage.. again. :mrgreen: You are spoiling us.

The collective noun for Cheetahs is a coalition of Cheetahs.

I am convinced that it is the same 4 I saw on the 2nd of June on the S100.

I doubt that there can be 2 coalittions of 4 males each in an area like that..

Squinting through the viewfinder I called the gender wrong...the "she" is a "he"

What happened in the cheetah drama?

3D it was a male cheetah calling for a mate. He walked, ran, a lioness appeared (and a lion but not shown) marked some territory, climbed a dead tree, found a mate (and mated, but not shown on video.) Lovely shots of the cheetah and great to hear the calls.

Thanks for posting eKoppen :thumbs_up:

Tx for the comments....a few more to share... :wink:

We were so lucky to find the Cheetah in the road. He pose for a few images and we thought with us the only car at the sighting we must just wait for the perfect shot

Image

He then left his mark on the Sanparks sign

Image

but then the the Hyenas arrive chase him away and snuff the sight

Image

and looks like if he thinks it is a joke and laugh about it ...but we didn't think it was a joke and missed out ....

Image

{ Sorry to upload Hyena images under the Cheetah forum :( }
