Cheetah vs toes

Having a cheetah lick your toes to clean them doesn’t seem the safest way to do it.  But luckily for wildlife photographer Kim Wolhuter, this young cheetah seemed to enjoy the job.  Kim had been busy taking pictures of the cub, its mother and the rest of her brood in Hashatu game reserve in Botswana.  The inquisitive youngster sidled up to the 57 year old and started to nibble Kim’s toes as he sat on the ground.  Luckily Kim had had six weeks filming this family of cheetahs and had slowly gained the animal’s trust.
