This is one of the two cheetah brothers from the zoo of cologne. I'm sorry that I can't tell you the name of this one because I've seen them just once from a distance.
Cheetahs can easily be recognized by the black line which runs from the eyes toward their mouth.
Lets celebrate the International Cheetah Day with a cheetah photo spam If you care about these magnificent felines you should support the Cheetah Conservation Fund!
