Curious Cheetah Uses Cameraman’s GoPro as a Chew Toy


While filming wild cats in the Serengeti, Photographer Boris Von Schoenebeck became friends with a mother cheetah and her cub. The friendly wild cats started climbing all over his jeep, and would hang out for hours every day, allowing him to get close to them and take photos. One day when the cub was on the roof he got a little too close for comfort, and the cheetah swatted at his GoPro and started gnawing on it. The cute cat continued to use the camera as a very expensive chew toy, and even got a pretty cool shot into his giant mouth. Boris was unharmed, but the lens on his GoPro wasn’t quite so lucky.
