Cheetah drinking

A male cheetah seen on the 2nd of February 2015. He must have made a kill not long before as his stomach was as big as I have ever seen. The intervals between kills can be quite long and predators have adapted with stomachs that can expand and hold about a quarter of their weight. Predators would usually go for a drink after leaving a kill and then spend several hours sleeping it off.
