Saharan Cheetah, following about a year of research for one of the the majority elusive cats in the world, scientists at the Sahara Conservation Fund (SCF) have finally captured a picture of cheetah.

The research team, which was directed by Tim Wacher and John Newby, set up a unseen camera in the wild in Niger, Africa, and was able to take a picture of the animal, which is supposed to be able to “withstand very high temperatures and can survive exclusive of a permanent source of water. ”

Newby said: “I think we were extra happy than surprised when the pictures came from, because we knew cheetahs were in general because we had seen their tracks several times. However, this area is so vast that option up an animal as rare as it always causes a lot of luck and a good decision on where to place the cameras. ”

Scientists estimate that less than 10 of this rare cat, which was inscribed on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s 2009 list of critically endangered and endangered species, roam the deserts of Termit TODAY ‘hui.
