Say Cheetah

A cheetah yawns while lounging in Tanzania's Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Cheetahs have gone extinct in three eastern African countries, and are listed as "vulnerable" in Tanzania. Threats to their survival include poaching, habitat loss, and a high rate of cheetah cub mortality. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
