Rare coalition of 5 male cheetahs resting, cleaning, hunting in Kenya

Male cheetahs are usually solitary, or stay with brothers. This is footage of a rare occurrence of unrelated male cheetahs banding together long term on July 8, 2017 in Kenya. The five are seen here resting in the shade of a small tree, bonding by cleaning each other. Later in the afternoon they set off on the hunt, where the kill is incredibly fast and not shown here. They devour the carcass quickly, clean up together, and move on across the open plains of the Maasai Mara.
