Cheetah mum and tiny cub

The tiny, tiny cub is only 1 week old and one of a litter of five cubs.

She picked up one of the cubs, that she had placed in a pile of old leafes in a sunny corner. She carried him (or her) towards me, dropped him on the grass, picked him up again, and posed right in front of me with this tiny, tiny cub for a moment, before she carried him back to his siblings. It was almost as if she wanted to show me how beautiful her babies were.

 

The cheetahs lives in Ree Safari Park near Ebeltoft in Denmark.
