Feline Tenderness

Two of Amani's sub-adult cheetah cubs clean each other after feasting on a Thomson's gazelle Amani had caught.

Predatory cats can exhibit such fierceness and aggression, but also have an amazing capacity for tenderness as they groom and bond.

This was our third and final sighting of Amani and her cubs in the space of two days in the Mara North Conservancy, south-west Kenya.
