Blood Brothers!

Good morning everyone!… We bumped into these three cheetah up towards the Rooiputs area. These three males scent-marked almost every tree for 5 km, until they found a nice resting place for a couple of hours!┬áMales are often social and may group together for life, usually with their brothers in the same litter.┬áMales are territorial. Females’ home ranges can be very large and a territory including several females’ ranges is impossible to defend. Instead, males choose the points at which several of the females’ home ranges overlap, creating a much smaller space, which can be properly defended against intruders while maximising the chance of reproduction. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!
