A tour group got the shock of their lives when a cheetah climbed on top of their Land Rover, while on safari in the Masai Mara, southwest Kenya. Once the tourists had gotten over the initial shock of a large, wild cat sat above them with only a thin sheet of canvas for protection, they began to take photographs, knowing this was likely to be the closest they would ever get to a cheetah.
Sibling Squash by Gus Mills
A three-week-old cub squashes one of its two litter mates during a brief visit by Mills to the den while the mother was out hunting. Mills and his team need to count the cubs and collect DNA from fur samples in order to establish paternity. Such brief interactions do not disturb the cheetahs, and they have never observed any adverse reaction by the mother or cubs.
