Chilled out Cheetah

This Cheetah was photographed at the Kragga Kamma Game Park, just outside Port Elizabeth this weekend.

I tried very hard to get it to look at me, but eventually concluded that it is like its domestic relatives. It certainly displayed all the normal, perverse characteristics of a cat. Life on my terms - I will look at you when I am good and ready - but that won't be today.

Hi All
This guy was not photographed in the wild. If I am not mistaken this is the Cheetah who acted the movie Duma. Given half a chance he will go for a ride in your car with you.
