The fastest cat alive, this elegant animal will always haunt those lucky enough to have seen one live, free, not caged in a zoo!! I saw this one in the Serengeti. She was reclining on a rock, in the mid-morning sunshine. She playfully out stretched her long paw to tease her 3 cubs playing at the base of the rock. This was the moment I tried to immortalize. During our afternoon game drive, we came across this same cheetah, frantically searching for a missing cub. So few of these beautiful creatures survive childhood. Part of the profits of my animal series always goes to African Wildlife Foundation to help in the quest of saving the wildlife of my adopted nation. The South Africa in which I was brought up did not as yet suffer from the invasion of Orientals with machine guns robbing these beautiful creatures of their lives, and the rest of the world of a heritage.
