It’s often said that two heads are better than one – but these cheetahs took it a step further when they stayed on the lookout in Kenya.

In a perfectly timed photo in Maasai Mara, a large cat appeared to have three heads, all facing in different directions.

Wimbledon wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein, who took the photo, said “moments like these are enchanting” and “worth seven hours in the rain.”

Cheetahs are the fastest animals on land and can reach a speed of 40 km/h in just 2.5 seconds when they sprint.

Females usually live alone or with their cubs while raising them. Male cheetahs often live in small groups, usually with their male siblings.

Although the cheetah population is steadily declining, Maasai Mara has one of the highest densities of cheetahs per square mile in the world.
