THE DAILY POST – WITH ONE LOOK

From my archives: When mum disciplined her cub because it gave her this look back. Most people would melt away and forget what just happened when subjected to these eyes, but Cheetah mums are of sterner stuff 😊

THE EVENING POST – CHEETAH AND THE CLEANUP CREW

Midday today I heard on the reserve radio that our two Cheetah boys had killed an Impala near Thanda House. I went out in my SUV to have a look. This is footage I took at this interesting sighting. The two males were feeding on the carcass while many scavenging birds were waiting for their turn.

Pied Crows, a Tawny Eagle, White-backed Vultures, Lapped-faced Vultures and a huge Marabou Stork were waiting for the Cheetahs to leave the remains of the Impala behind after finishing their meal. I stayed for almost an hour before I had to leave the scene for a short meeting.

When I returned thirty minutes later on my way home the Cheetah had left and the scavengers had already cleaned up most of the remains. The bush cleanup crew at work! PS: This morning’s post’s bird was a Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill.

THE MORNING POST – INTERRUPTED DRINK STOP

Two male Cheetah walked in on us as we were enjoying an evening drink stop at a waterhole. After everyone got back in the vehicle the two boys got their drink while we were watching, enjoying our own drinks 😊
