SIX CHEETAH In One Spot! | Tano Bora/Fast Five/Five Musketeers Flirting | Maasai Mara Safari

in dtube •  last year  (edited)


The famous cheetah coalition known as Tano Bora/Fast Five/Five Musketeers are always going to provide a special sighting and this case was even more amazing than usual.

We found the cheetah coalition when we noticed the hyenas milling around, at first there was nothing unusual about the sighting until movement in the grass alerted us to the fact that there were SIX cheetah present.

The sixth cheetah was the Nashipai female and she had been surrounded by the five males and they were not going to let her go. Typically when a cheetah coalition finds a receptive female cheetah they will all attempt to impress her until she selects a partner. There may be fighting within the coalition at this point, there will also be aggression between them and the female as they attempt to stop her moving away. Once the female cheetah has chosen her partner they will move away from the others.

At this sighting it was still early in the procedure as the previous evening the Fast Five were not seen with Nashipai. The process went on the whole day and the separation of the cheetah couple only occurred that night. In this video it is incredible just to witness a small amount of the interaction!

The purpose of the Rob The Ranger Wildlife Videos YouTube channel is to show what it is like to experience seeing wild animals on an African safari. Nature Documentaries are often highly edited to tell a story, wildlife safaris are not, and the idea here is to show the wildlife sightings the way they were seen. Safari tours in Africa are generally suitable for all ages and this channel can be considered an educational channel about incredible nature, some scenes in the nature videos may be more graphic than people are used to but this is the reality of nature and is what you would see if you were present on such a safari in person. Safaris in Kenya, South Africa, or any other African country are an unrivaled experience for anyone with a passion for nature, wildlife photography, and travel. Hopefully the animal videos on this channel can provide a glimpse into what the nature experience is like and encourage more people to take a wildlife safari one day.

Wow! Really cool footage, can't believe there are six cheetahs in one spot here with the female as well as the pack of five males. I didn't realize that male cheetahs would hang out together in a group like that.

@tipu curate

Yeah... male cheetahs are very sociable and will normally group together for life (normally their brothers from the same litter).

P.S. Thanks for the curation! Much Appreciated!

What a gorgeous sighting, other than in general rehabilitation centrums, I have never seen so many cheetahs together, If lucky, maybe a mother and a cub - This was really great to watch
