Cheetah castling


Just as it is more difficult for single cheetah males to establish and defend their territories if there are male coalitions in the area, it is more difficult for smaller coalitions in presence of a large coalition. However, to maintain the genetic diversity of the population, participation in the reproduction of as many unrelated males as possible is necessary. Therefore, single males, like members of small coalitions, use every opportunity to explore the territory of competitors in their absence because encounters of coalitions may be fatal. When the Tano Bora males left the Reserve for Olare-Motorogi conservancy, Sopa males came to a part of their territory near Kikorok. And last evening they headed back towards Sopa, which turned out on time, since today the Tano Bora has returned from the OMC to the Reserve.
