This Cheetah was telling us to "back off" as we got closer...or perhaps he is just yawning? There are very few cheetahs in Tanzania, only around 250. We were lucky enough to view several, even a Mom with her cubs. But our guide told us that the mortality rate for Cheetah cubs is over 90%! So less then 1 in 10 cheetahs makes it to adulthood.
