- A perfectly timed photograph of a cheetah makes it seem as though it has three heads.
The photo was taken in the Masai Mara’s rain-soaked North Conservancy grasslands.
In the world, the region has one of the greatest densities of cheetahs per square mile.
The old proverb “two heads are better than one” has always been commonly used, but these cheetahs took it a step further by keeping watch in Kenya.
One large cat appeared to have three heads in a perfectly timed photograph in the Maasai Mara, each of which was looking in a different direction.
Paul Goldstein, a wildlife photographer from Wimbledon who took the picture, said that “moments like this are spellbinding” and that it was “worth seven hours in the rain.”
The fastest land animal, the cheetah can run at speeds of 25 mph in under 2.5 seconds.
In most cases, females nurture their pups while living alone or with them. Cheetah males frequently live in small packs with their male siblings.
The Maasai Mara has one of the highest densities of cheetahs per square mile in the world, despite the fact that their population is steadily declining.
