The fastest land animal the cheetah. We just arrived as this cheetah mother had just taken down a Grant’s gazelle for her two cups to feed on. The small family was chewing away as the gazelle was starring lifeless into the sky above. Females live alone and they raise their cubs on their own. A beautiful predator build like a racing car.

The images you see here is from an early morning at the Mara river where this group of lions where out looking for a easy meal. Lions are not a very fast hunters and consequently have to use other techniques to get a full stomach. Many times lions just hide in the grass or in a bush where it knows that prey will pass, it could be a water hole or route that is used by zebras, wildebeest etcetera. Lions tend to hunt mostly in the morning or at night but if the chance arises they will kill even in midday sun on a hot day. A quiet morning in the Masai Mara Kenya.
