Young Cheetah male (one of the two in the previous image) carrying off a Thompson's Gazelle fawn that he found in the tall grass, well hidden there by its mother. This fawn is about 4-5 days old. From the herd, the mother watches the spot where she had hidden it, and from time-to-time comes to her fawn, nurses it, and cleans up its excrement to remove the scent. The fawn remains motionless, even when a predator comes close. But the cheetah knowingly made wide back-&-forth sweeps in the vicinity of the grazing gazelles, and found this one. We followed the cheetah to a small kopje with a shade-tree and saw him devour the fawn. See next image: [Serengeti, Tanzania].
