Born To Climb
Cheetah cubs have a thick silvery-grey mantle down their back. The mantle helps camouflage the cubs by imitating the look of an aggressive animal called a honey badger. This mimicry may help deter predators such as lions, hyenas, and eagles from attempting to kill them. Cubs lose their mantle at about three months of age.

تتمتّع صغار الفهد الصيّاد بفرو فضي-رمادي في أسفل ظهرها، ممّا يساعدها على التمويه إذ تجعلها تشبه حيواناً مفترساً يدعى غرير العسل. يساعدها تقليد هذا الحيوان في العادة على ردع الحيوانات المفترسة مثل الأسود والضباع والنسور التي تحاول قتلها، لكنّها تخسر هذا الفرو المُلوّن عند بلوغها عمر الثلاثة أشهر.
