Okay, maybe that’s a bit mean, but the predators of the Maasai Mara were fat, at least compared to the lean, lean cheetah I saw in Tsavo earlier this year. We were lucky enough to watch this group of five/four? rather chubby cheetahs choke and devour a wildebeest in the Maasai Mara on the recent field course I taught in Kenya.
I also learned that there’s such a thing as TOO MANY cheetah photos, which I didn’t know was possible. But I took approximately a million of this gory scene. (WARNING: Nature red in tooth and claw ahead!)
