so it's portrayed that way. Reading about a lot of S Africa trips coming up. Keep looking over your shoulders...

I think this is a staged image. I say so because you see a box around the Cats neck. My sense that box is a shock to the cat if required.

If you Google Cheetah laying next to photographer you find out that this is a tame cat that is in a game preserve. Her name is Mtombi. You will even see photos of her looking at the back of the camera and another of the photographer petting her.

Sorry to be a spoiler. It's a nice idea that a truly wild Cheetah would just lay down next to a person and just enjoy the company.

I tell you it is a real photo in the wild !! Here is the next photo of the guy taken ten minutes later after the rest of the family arrived. Well...the guy is gone....... Darwin was right...

Are you kidding me? Is that a real situational photo?

There is an old saying: "Figures can lie and liars can figure!" Just change it to read, photographers can mislead people, and people can misread photographs!"

If it looks too strange to be true, it is probably (but not always) false.

Definitely staged, the obvious question being “who took the photo”?

Looking at the camera? Are you kidding? He's sniffing the photographer - prior to having lunch. : )

The cat has something strapped to his neck - a tracker?

Pet Cheetah. They are easily domesticated, and get along well with dogs. More like dogs than cats.

Wonderful even if it is staged and Cats are special creatures that make great photo subjects for sure .
I could watch them all day long.
