Cheetah Leans Against Fence so that Meerkats can Groom Him

In the wild, Cheetahs would view Meerkats as snack food. Here, they pet and groom him while he purrs.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t be able to share shots like this, but it’s been shared all over the local news by my zoo, so it’s probably okay. On February 21, 2017, coyote creek flooded and my zoo had to evacuate a whole lot of animals from the flood plain (everyone was successfully moved before the waters came in, and everyone is safe and happy back in their homes).

Anyway here’s some meerkats in a bathroom.
