Cheetahs Camouflage

A cheetah’s spots cover nearly its entire body and may serve as camouflage by offsetting shadows in the gray-hued brownish environment they inhabit.

Camouflage is not only essential for stalking prey but also for protecting cheetah cubs from predators.

Cheetah tails end with a bushy tuft encircled by five or six dark rings. These markings provide them with excellent camouflage while hunting and make them more difficult for other predators to detect.

More of this Actions you’ll get to watch if you book your #migrationsafari24 with Ericonsafari at #masaimara where most predators are spread at the vast lands savannah of Masai Mara…….
