Cheetah cub digesting a recent meal .

While in the Namiri Plains area of the Serengeti at dusk, we spotted a cheetah cub staring out while digesting a recent meal from a gazelle. The cub clearly had some fresh residue left on its face and the cub's mother was 20 yards away enjoying her meal on the same gazelle.
