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 :( }

Here are a couple we encountered heading south just before Tshokwane on the 07Aug 2012.
It appears that the mother was training the juvenile to hunt.

what do you think, are these three brothers or a mother with two "cubs"? The one in front looks a tad bit taller to me...



filmed on Oct 14, near Satara

thanks
