I have rarely seen a picture of a cheetah that does these majestic animals more justice than this one. (I probably haven't at all...)

WOW. Are cheetahs supposed to be that thin? It's eyes look so focused...totally not like me during science, ahahahahaha :D GREAT JOB!

In the Kalahari the predators (even the lions) travel vast distances and experience drought and lean spells when it comes to regular feeding...they are all thinner than you'd expect but perfectly healthy.

It's suppose to be that thin, they burn through calories very quickly when they run for their food. It also helps them to be light on their feet when stalking prey. This is a younger cheetah so they always look scruffy and thin.
