Saharan Cheetah finally photographed. Boy it thrills me to share the information about this most rare breed of cheetah photograph. Its been reported that the total population of this Saharan Cheetah is said to be somewhere around 10 to 200.
I believe the readers will emphasize on how crucial the photo’s are to the scientist.
“I think we were more happy than surprised when the images turned up, because we knew cheetahs were in the general area because we had seen their tracks on several occasions,” said John Newby, CEO of the Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF), who is part of the team looking for the rare cat. “However, the area is so vast that picking up an animal as rare as this always entails a lot of luck and good judgment on where to place the cameras.”
From the few observations they’ve made from camera-trap snapshots between July and August, and of animal tracks, they estimate that fewer than 10 individuals resides in the vast desert of Termit and Tin Toumma in Niger
