Behaviour: Mammals, Highly Commended 2021

Cheetahs are strong swimmers and with the prospect of more prey on the other side of the flooded Talek River, this group was determined to cross. Dilini followed them for hours. Eventually they leapt in and, against her expectations, made it across and headed off to hunt.

Usually solitary, male cheetahs sometimes stay with their brothers or team up with unrelated individuals. The Tano Bora group is an unusually large coalition that has changed scientific understanding of cheetah behaviour.
