Acinonyx jubatus (Schreber, 1775)
Cheetahs hunt mostly in early morning and late afternoon and they normally not active at night.
Adult Cheetah tend to leave a solitary life, but they are more sociable than Leopards.
Young Cheetahs stay with their mothers for a long period of time and this accounts for sights of groups of animals of about 4 to 6 individuals
The Picture on the left was taken at the Kalahari Gemsbok Park on the road between Nossob and Twee Rivieren Camps.
This Young Cheetah was part of a litter of 4 cubs and the mother playing on the sandy track, early morning.
