An two-headed cheetah walking the plains of Kenya. In fact 44-year-old photographer Dan Galati was just lucky enough to catch two of the big cats walking side-by-side for this incredible optical illusion.
The cheetah is a large cat. It live occurs in Southern, North and East Africa, and a few localities in Iran. Cheetahs can reach speeds of 112 km/h in short bursts. Blesbok, duiker, Grant’s gazelle, impala, reedbuck, springbok, and Thomson’s gazelle are some of the common targets of the cheetah. Other prey animals include the bat-eared fox, bushbuck, kudu, hartebeest, nyala, oribi, roan antelope, steenbok, sable antelope, and waterbuck.
Cheetahs hunt primarily throughout the day, but geographical variations exist. For instance, cheetahs in the Sahara and the Masai Mara hunt after sunset to escape the high temperatures of the day. In the Serengeti they hunt when the lions and hyenas are inactive.
Galati, who was in the Maasai Mara nature reserve when he captured the picture, said: ‘I took this photo during the Wildebeest migration.
‘It’s always an exciting time. The big cats are most active during this time of the year and to see the five in action was very exciting for me. These five cheetahs are very famous in the Mara and a big draw card for tourists.
‘The two cheetahs I photographed were walking together and I noticed there movements were completely synchronised so I began taking shots of the two side by side, step by step.’
