Twaffle - you are right, Bawa means wing. He is just over a year old now and from looking scruffy a couple of months ago he is growing up to be a beautiful, relaxed male cheetah. He usually eats the 'lions' share of Malaika's kills hence she sometimes has to kill twice in a day - the first kill being for Bawa!
Interesting thing about the Mara cheetahs is the amount of territory they cover. They are most definitely not territorial. Malaika and Bawa for example just in the last few months have been seen as far west as Musiara Marsh, south down to Lookout Hill and two days ago they were seen moving east not far from Keekorok. That pretty much covers 80% of the Narok side of the park.
Malaika is F15 on the ID scale. She is pretty much the most approachable cheetah I have come across.
I urge anyone that has been to the Mara and photographed cheetahs to contribute to this thread. In addition to helping with the research you will get some amazing information from Dr. Elena on the history of that cheetah - and who knows you may just identify one outside of her current set which will be exciting.
