Camouflage at its best

In this picture, it is apparent just how difficult it can be to spot a Cheeta on the African grass plains. We had been sitting in the car overlooking a great expanse of savannah with groups of antelopes scattered in all directions. It was only after some time we realized two Cheetas was slowly approaching a group of antelopes. Moving slowly, they mixed perfectly with the yellow grass. The cheetah is known for its speed and agility. It’s also known for being one of the most successful big cats when it comes to hunting prey. One of the reasons for this is the cheetah’s ability to camouflage itself in tall grasses found on the African grass plains. The cheetah can remain motionless for long periods of time, waiting for an opportunity to pounce on its prey.
