Mamma-cub love

After the Cheetah mummy and the cub had finished eating, they were relaxing and half-asleep. We watched them for nearly 45 minutes when the cub got up and started licking his mom - as if trying to clean all the blood and meat particles hanging on her face. Such love between the mother and her cub!
