Acinonyx jubatus


The tortoise and the cheetahs!




We watched for about ten minutes as the tortoise walked slowly towards the cheetahs. The cub spotted it immediately, but the mother was more concerned with scanning the horizon for possible prey. The tortoise reached the cheetahs, then slowly turned around and ambled away, unharmed.
