THE EVENING POST – YAWN

This evening this Thanda Safari Cheetah male gave a good yawn before he got up to move off. Interesting fact: Large cats in general announce their intention to walk away by yawing a few times.

Have a good week!

STAY-AT-HOME SATURDAY

I know I posted a lot of Cheetah pictures last night. But the news of the new cubs is so exciting that I thought you might like to see some more.

This are some of my favorite shots from last night 😊

Enjoy your Saturday, stay home and stay safe.

Bad news for the bunnies! Great news for Thanda Safari!

This week an additional female Cheetah was released onto the reserve. The young cat, which came to Thanda with a serious leg injury in October, spent four months in a boma (=fenced-in area) to recover.

But she obviously lost none of her skills. Less than an hour after her release she gave a Scrub Hare a run for its money. She almost caught the nimble creature. And on the day after her release she made her first kill and even climbed a tree to mark the occasion of her recovery.

We wish her all the best in her new home and hope she will meet our Cheetah gentlemen, soon.

Catch the Scrub Hare …

Miss the Scrub Hare …

Speed …

Rain on the Savanna …

A short rest …

Careful steps …

That’s it …
