Photo by @FransLanting A young cheetah’s raspy tongue cleans his brother's cheeks stained with blood after they ate a gazelle caught by their mother. When cheetahs become independent after a childhood of a year and a half, males often stay together as a hunting coalition, but females become solitary and are faced with the double duty of hunting and caring for young.
