We came across this magnificent cat in the Kalahari area of Botswana.
The cheetah is the fastest land animal on earth, the Ferrari of the Kalahari. They are endangered, however, because they are not the strongest of the big cats and their prey is frequently stolen by the other big cats like lions and leopards and hyenas as well.
Also, as is often the case, humans are responsible because of poaching and hunting. The fur is beautiful and some people think it is OK to wear fur. It definitely is not.
