Great post. Others will debunk the 2013 study and so it goes. BTW: check your spelling of Maputaland on your profile.

Very interesting blog James. It is a tough life in the bush for all animals. I wonder why cheetah would not stash their kill like the leopards. Thanks for debunking the myths.

Hi Leonie. Thanks for your comment. Cheetah don’t stash their kills like leopards as they are not strong enough to hoist the carcasses. Because they are built for speed they are not nearly as muscular and powerful as leopards. Sometimes we see a cheetah that is able to scramble up a tree but they are not nearly as proficient in climbing as a leopard. I hope that clears things up for you. Many thanks, Amy
