Cheetahs annoyed by Hyena, Serengeti Two young cheetahs are trying to chill during the hottest time of day, if only this persistent Hyena would not circle them. Likely, the Hyena is waiting for the Cheetahs to kill, after which he/she can steal it. Although cheetahs are big cats, they are not the strongest of cats. Built for speed, compromises had to be made in their build. Acinonyx jubatus,Africa,Cheetah,Serengeti Central,Serengeti National Park,Serengeti area,Tanzania Click/tap to enlarge
