A portrait of a cheetah, taken out at Monarto Zoo, South Australia. We had a wonderful “meet the cheetah” experience several years ago, where we went into the enclosure and even patted these beautiful big cats.Featured in Zoophoria.

    That was quick! Hi Sylvia,no i don’t work in a zoo,but my wife Barb and i went on a (Meet The Cheetahs) tour,and the cheetah handlers,(who raised them from cubs) even allow you to pat them,this image was taken with a Canon EFS-60mm-Macro lens at a distance of about three meters,cheers.

    Lovely shot Lance, but if he’s licking his chops I would have been behind a fence in no time.
