Lucky Rani

Being opportunistic hunters, cheetahs use every chance to catch prey. Tall grass can help a cheetah to approach an antelope at a distance sufficient for a productive attack and can prove a good cover for the opened kill. In such cases, cheetah can stay at a kill for over 6 hours, feeding from the same carcass from time to time. Today, Rani spent several hours feeding on Thompson gazelle in the morning and later, in the evening. When she left with a full belly, vultures appeared on the stage, which patiently waited for their turn. In a minute their feast was interrupted by a hyena, and Rani could watch the action from a safe distance.
