I looked through the glass in this enclosure and at first there was nothing there but then look what appeared running at a fast trot? He was absolutely beautiful. I have been given many gifts on this holiday. The sight of such a magnificent animal, in fact so many magnificent animals, was a true gift.

You can find out more about the Cheetah here.


  1. I'm so glad you're enjoying the Honolulu Zoo. I haven't been there in ages.

  2. It was a memorable day. The zoo is beautiful and so are its animals.

  3. Ah, love the spots on this guy. One of the animals I love to sketch... very nice indeed.

  4. I was priviliged enough to visit Kenya in the early 90's and saw a cheetah in the wild. She had two beautiful cubs with her. She had just made a kill, and she and the cubs were feeding. An unforgetable memory.
