Six weeks after we first met them, David and I plus a good friend were privileged enough to be allowed special access to photograph 3 adorable cheetah cubs at Hamerton Zoo. Born on 30th June, the three boys were named Kito, Makali and Tyson.
The cubs had grown significantly since we last saw them but at 15 weeks old, they were still small and extremely cute.
The cubs were very sociable as a result of being hand-reared. We spent a wonderful morning watching and photographing them whilst they played, chased each other and posed beautifully for us.
When the cubs started to tire, Tracy, our keeper for the morning suggested that we leave them to have their lunch whilst we go photograph the adult cheetahs.
I’m probably starting to sound like a broken record now but there really is no better place to photograph cheetahs than at Hamerton Zoo.
Thanks to Tracy for organising the photography morning for us and to Rosa for being such a great mummy to the cubs and furnishing me with their date of birth and names.
