A young cheetah thinks he's a leopard

Thanks to Emilie for this beautiful pictures series. They were taken on March 10th between 8:50 am and 9:15 am. A nice meeting with the Imani's family, especially with the young female which tries to climb in a tree. But she is not a leopard and the exercise is not easy for a cheetah, even young!... 

At the beginning of the morning, Imani and her cubs walked in the savannah, making stops each time they passed next to a termites' mount. When a tree appeared, the young female decided to climb on it. Not easy for a cheetah because its claws are neither retractable nor hooked... After several attempts, she gave up this idea and found her mother, always in search of a prey to feed her small family.
