Wednesday was cheetah day we spent the day with the cheetahs learning about them and discovering how they live in the wild.
We started of by cleaning the areas where they live and moving them into different places. Which was a bit of a challenge because they are aggressive but they don't bite. They are more scared of you then you are of them. It's so funny watching them walk and run they are so stupid and beautiful at the same time. They walk into things a lot and when we were trying to move them they would walk into a tree and run back and the same thing would happen over and over again. It's crazy how fast they move and how powerless they seem against humans. They aren't really scary but when they hiss at you and jump it's a bit suprising but you learn to cope with it. After we moved them around we then had a yummy lunch and then we fed them their lunch .. raw chickens.. So yummy and so smelly! Ewww! It was so gross,they would like follow you around and jump because they want it so badly but you would just tease them and play and wind them up which was so much fun yet so funny. Ifs amazing even though the chicken was dead they treat it just like prey- they run to it, grab it and run away. It was amazing because they would look right into your eyes and you could feel their breathe on your face. It's just amazing connecting with all the animals, amazing!
I will post some videos and photos of them soon!
