The Living Desert has cheetahs on exhibit, but we rarely see them. First, they blend in with their surroundings so well and hide in the tall grass that even when they are out, sometimes we don't see them! Second, they aren't let out that often! Third, we just never seem to get there at the right time. This trip, in 2004, however, we did! It was early morning, when they had just been released from their cages. Can you see the cheetah? Isn't he beautiful?
