Cheetah family – Maasai Mara 2019

Cheetah family. We came across this cheetah family as they moved onto a termite mound to take advantage of the early morning sunshine. The light made for superb videography. The cubs can be recognized by the mane-like feature on the back of their necks. This starts to disappear at 3 months but remains visible at 2 years of age. The family were constantly scanning the environment for potential prey. Lovely sighting!
