Cheetahs in the Serengeti
We found these two beautiful cheetah on the Serengeti Plain last week. That's the mom on the left and daughter (I think) on the right. A few minutes later the mom pounced on a small reedbuck antelope, dragged it into some brush to hide from lions and gave it to her cub to devour for breakfast. One good thing about cheetahs and lions and leopards. They kill their prey quickly and then eat them, as opposed to the nasty hyena who start from the back and devour their prey while it is still alive. We witnessed both versions.
