KENIA - MASAI MARA - CONFRUNTARE - MAMA GHEPARD - LEOAICA


December 18, 2020, Masai Mara, Olare Conservancy, Kenya: A mother cheetah stood her ground when a lioness threatened her family. ..British photographer Paul Goldstein captured the scene in Kenya’s Masai Mara in December, 2020. ..The female lion was seen prowling near her four cubs, and there was a risk the youngsters would be attacked. ..But, thankfully, the cheetah mum’s brave stand-off with the invader paid off and her cubs went unharmed. ..Paul, who has guided in Kenya for almost 30 years, explains: “I thought I had seen it all when it came to jaw dropping feats of mothering, but apparently not. I was astonished as a cheetah took on a lioness three times her size. ..“This mother's four cubs were only a couple of months old; they could never outrun a lioness and this particular one had already seen them. The mother's sole goal was to harass the predator until, exhausted, it lost interest. This was potentially catastrophic policy as any sort of physical engagement would have spelt the end for the mother. And her cubs. ..“It could have gone either way, but after several traumatic minutes, the tawny cat lost interest and the cheetahs survived. This particular mom: Imani is a remarkable cat from a dynasty of them in Olare Conservancy. She flits between this priceless parcel of land and the reserve.” ..Paul Goldstein is a professional guide, photographer and presenter and co-owns Kicheche, four eco camps in Kenya...Where: Masai Mara, Olare Conservancy, Kenya.When: 18 Dec 2020.Credit: Paul GoldsteinCover-Images.com..**Editorial Use Only* (Credit Image: © Cover Images via ZUMA Press)
