On one of my visits to Masai Mara I got to photograph these two Cheetah brothers in the Mara Triangle very close to the Ololoolo Escarpment.
Cheetahs are the meekest of the big cats and loose over 75% of their kills to other animals like Lions, Hyenas and Leopards. These two brothers working together in a coalition have a better chance of bringing down a prey and also defending it against others.
