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! Males are often social and may group together for life, usually with their brothers in the same litter. Males 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!
