Cheetahs on the Lookout

Uploaded: August 14, 2014 06:44:58 | Entered: August 14, 2014 06:51:30


We found this beautiful Mom (left) and daughter (I think) cheetahs hunting early one morning on the Serengeti plains last week in Tanzania. A few minutes later the mother pounced on a young reedbuck dragged it into a bush and gave it to her grown cub for breakfast.
