Curious cheetah finds a photographer and adorably nibbles on his toes!
Kim Wolhuter, 57, was in Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana, when the curious young animal approached him.
He was snapping photos of a mother and her cubs when one of her cubs decided to investigate this strange creature.
Kim said: "The mum and her cubs were close by and I had spent some time filming them."
"The female cub was a lot more curious than her brothers, so approached me as I was lying on the ground taking shots. When she got really close to me and near to my foot, I thought she was going to swat it, but instead she had a lick and a nibble."
"It hurt slightly, so I pulled my foot away, but she seemed to know to nibble gently. After all, a good bite would have gotten a very bad reaction from me.
She seemed to be testing me like a domestic cat would do with its owner. At no stage was I concerned, there was nothing threatening in her behaviour.
She was curious and trusting, so it was important that I conveyed the same feelings and be as confident as possible in what I was doing."
Kim got great shots and walked away with all of his toes!
This is the only way to "shoot" animals. :)
