These cheetahs where born here at the cheetah project compound. There are really very few cheetahs left in the world. Partly because the gene pool is so small. All cheetahs that are alive today come from cats that are really too closely related, but luckily they are responding well to breeding here at this compound. There is hope for a better future for them.
|Elder Edington got some awesome pictures. |
It was difficult to decide which ones to put on the blog
|This is one of Elder Edington's |
favorite cheetah pictures.
|This is a nice picture as well.|
|This is kind of blurry but it|
is a close up of my thumb
in the cheetah's mouth.
|Elder Edington got into the act as well. |
I can not help believe the cheetahs
are so calm with so many people.
|This is a serval. They are the|
tallest cats of the small cat family.
| This African wild cat looks very nearly the same |
as the house cats we have had at home. They have
been inter breeding with domestic cats so there are very few true African wild cats left.
