Cheetah

 

Borås zoo - with two or three cubs following her around, she was keeping a wary eye on everyone.

Probably my favourite species of cat, Tom.

What a beauty, Tom, nice shot.

I'm sure she'd kill anything within striking distance to protect her brood
Tom Wilson: I'm sure you are right!
Why the sad mouth?
Tom Wilson: Waiting for lunch time?
That is stressful for her. She would prefer to have them hidden in the wild, surely.
Tom Wilson: Could be... but I think that the zoo would not put her and the kits out if they thought there would be a problem. The kits were hiding away in the undergrowth and she was just keeping an eye out.
Another fine looking animal.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - I think there were three cubs.

A lovely looking animal
Tom Wilson: I'm with Ray on this one - my favourite cat, run close by the lynx smile

Stunning markings too, Tom
Tom Wilson: Great camouflage, I imagine.
i like cheetahs very much and you have a nice shot of her. i have a couple of shots from the local zoo here but that fellow was very shy. i hope their numbers in the wild go up.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush - if the zoos keep on produce young the way Borås seems able to do, it should help with the wild population.
