A remarkable feature of Cheetahs is their unusually low genetic variability in comparison to other cats.
Individuals are genetically very similarity to one another. It is assumed that this might have resulted from a long period of inbreeding, following a genetic bottleneck during the last ice age.
These pictures of a Cheetah female – watching a two male coalition down the road and meeting them – were taken at Thanda Safari.
Have a good weekend!
