Photo by @FransLanting Two half grown cheetah cubs sit next to their mother while she is surveying the landscape ahead for signs of trouble and opportunity. We followed this family day in and day out and got an intimate understanding of the challenges a female cheetah faces as she does double duty. She is a single mother and a working woman. She has to hunt, but minimize risks to herself while she chases prey and she has to keep her cubs out of trouble as well. Males play no role in the upbringing of cheetah cubs. It takes a year and a half of constant risk assessment and decision making for a cheetah mom to wean a litter of cubs to independence. And she teaches them by example as you can see here. It is amazing to see the drama of the daily lives of cheetahs play out in real time. Follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more intimate encounters with cheetahs. @Thephotosociety #Cheetah #BigCats #Endangered #Wildlifephotography #Motherhood #Wildlife #Safari
