The Warning Glance by darkSoul4Life The Warning Glance by darkSoul4Life
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 :D
If you care about these magnificent felines you should support the Cheetah Conservation Fund!
If you like cheetahs, have a look at this folder containing mainly high quality cheetah photos: [link] more cheetah photos will be posted during the day ;)
I'm participating with this photo in the International Cheetah Day Challenge. Follow the link if you would like to know more about it.

Feedback is also highly appreciated Photo 13/17; more are coming during the day

As far as I can tell... I am sure it's a Northeast African cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus soemmeringii). :idea:

It's hard to not stare back when they're looking at you like this.

It's sad that it came so far that so many species are threatened.

Agree~ we human should play a part, even for small one.. dont support and buy leather products (cheetahs,snakes, lizards etc.)

Yet how many are concerned about this?
