Near Lake Ndutu, Tanzania, we spent a morning with a momma cheetah and her cubs. These two, played chase through a flock of Guinea Fowl. Cheetah cubs stay with their mother for approximately 18months. This pair are almost ready to leave home. Though Cheetahs are generally solitary animals, brothers often stay together for several years defending a unified territory. The Cheetah infant mortality rate can be as high as 95%, so it was a real treat to see such a healthy, nearly grown family.
