Ketswiri Update

By 6 years ago
Categories Limpopo and KZN

After nearly a month of no sightings, Ketswiri, our younger female Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), was spotted in the North Western corner of the reserve.  However, it seems one of her two remaining cubs did not make it through this period and is presumed to have been killed.  At just over 6 months old, her only surviving cub remains by her side and looks to be in very good condition. 
Ketswiri’s VHF collar’s battery died in June, 2011. She is due to have it removed and replaced, but that can only happen when the cub reaches an age where it can be separated from its mother for a few days.  Until then, any sightings come as a pleasant surprise.  We will continue to update the blog with any news of Ketswiri and her cub, as and when she is sighted.
