Two heads are better than one, as the saying goes, but these cheetahs took it a step further by keeping a lookout in Kenya.
One large cat appeared to have three heads in Maasai Mara, all looking in different directions, in a perfectly timed photograph.
Wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein of Wimbledon, who captured the image, described it as “spellbinding” and “worth seven hours in the rain.”
Cheetahs are the fastest land animals, reaching speeds of 25 mph in only 2.5 seconds when sprinting.
Females usually live alone or in close proximity to their cubs while they are growing up. Male cheetahs typically live in small groups with their male siblings.
Despite the fact that the cheetah population is steadily declining, Maasai Mara has one of the highest densities of cheetahs per square mile in the world.
The spellbinding moment when three cheetahs perfectly line up to make it appear as if one animal has three heads.
The moment was captured on camera in Maasai Mara, Kenya’s North Conservancy.
Male cheetahs usually live in small groups with their male siblings, whereas females usually live alone unless they are protecting their cubs. The majestic cats were perfectly positioned in the rainswept grasses for the unusual sighting.
