This cheetah cub, one of three, and one adult, were taking part in an experiment, to determine the viability of footprint id software. I was fortunate to have participated in this project as a volunteer. Here the cat is being lured with meat, onto wet sand to leave his prints, where they are subsequently photographed. We were inside a fenced compound, with nothing but light sticks, as a deterrent to their hostility. Meat trumps all for cats, large and small.
