This female cheetah and her unusually large family, have had considerable success in obtaining food, even if sometimes playful cubs while hunting forget why they came here and begin to frolic. Over the past three months in the wild survived only 10 percent of cheetah cubs, but these four-month cubs chances of living are very high.

And they really justify the confidence of his mother’s ingenuity and dedication, as she teaches them hunting, protection from predators, often changing the shelter to keep their enemies at bay. In this case she has to put up with quite a noisy behavior as much as six cubs. But for family photos that were made in the National Park Masai Mara, Kenya, shows that she copes with them quite skillfully.

The representative of the conservation of cheetahs was glad that such endangered species as it has a large number of cubs. She said: “It fills us with hope that the mother will be able to successfully care for the brood. But it will be with them only for some time. The cheetah does not leave their babies until they reached 18 months.

The existence of the cheetah cubs father can not even imagine all the time are close to mom. Patricia Trikorache of the International Charitable Foundation for the Preservation cheetahs, said: “This is an extremely rare achievement, when one female were born as live young.

Cheetahs Diaries … The Hard Fight for Survival

The cheetah is an atypical member of the cat family¬† that is unique in its speed, while lacking strong climbing abilities. The species is the only living member of the genus Acinonyx. It is the fastest land animal, reaching speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 460 m (1,510 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 103 km/h (64 mph) in three seconds, faster than most supercars. Recent studies confirm the cheetah’s status as the fastest land animal. The cheetah has unusually low genetic variability and a very low sperm count and motility, and deformed flagella.[8] Skin grafts between unrelated cheetahs illustrate this point in that there is no rejection of the donor skin. It is thought that the species went through a prolonged period of inbreeding following a genetic bottleneck during the last ice age. It probably evolved in Africa during the Miocene epoch (26 million to 7.5 million years ago), before migrating to Asia
