Welcome to our African Wildlife Gallery and our collection of Wildlife Pictures.
The pictures featured here are from Wild Cheetahs, and were  taken by Ernest Lopes on  the  Greater Kruger National Park and the
Private Wildlife Reserves   around it,  as well as the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, in South Africa.
Cheetahs belong to the Family Felidae and all members of this family are proficient killers praying mostly on higher vertebrates.
The tongue is covered with horny papillae directed backwards. They have five toe on the forefeet and four on the hind feet.
All Felidae have sharp retractable claws. Cheetahs are the only members of the family with non retractable claws
