I understand she is raising her latest young cubs this year, and I think this will be her 9th litter, which as she is now around 11 years old is quite amazing! It is an indication of the difficulties faced by these beautiful creatures that from her previous 8 litters, she has raised just 5 cubs to adult independence.

What a wonderful cheetah she is, and you have caught her in sweet light here, Clement!

Great light on this beautiful cat! Quite a good look at that giant tail too.
