Noted and signed. A rare photo to be sure. Too many of our precious wildlife are disappear. Maybe these elusive cats are aware of that fact and are doing all that they can to hide from human intrusion upon their habitat...

noted and confused....this is such a beautiful animal...great cat....but i have serious would seem than whenever we find another only gives the killers a new target...and soon these cats will become extinct.....i'd really like to believe that the cats will be protected but the faith i have in mankind is faith in the evil that lives within these killer people who live and walk among us for greed and profit....i sincerely hope that these animals will be safe and well and hidden from the poachers...the killers....

maybe this beautiful creature's elusiveness could be enough to keep at least a few individuals alive in the presence of so many extinctions...

Wow - it doesn't even look like a cheetah! looks more like a starving lioness. I hope they leave the poor bloody things alone.

Awesome kitty. Smart, too, to stay away from man. Thanks, Tarequl.
