Caption: Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) mother, with one of her cubs, half-grown at 7 months of age, in Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya, East Africa. The cub is practicing the neck stranglehold it will need to learn for killing prey. Their prey is an Oribi (Ourebuia ourebi), a small antelope killed by the mother just moments earlier.
