More Photos of Rare Saharan Cheetah and Other Wildlife
In March of 2009 we posted about photos of the rare Saharan cheetahs caught on wildlife cameras . Recently more photos have been released by the Sahara Conservation Fund  showing a ghostly cheetah and other wild cats and other wildlife, including this wonderful photo of a sand cat.
Their home can reach sizzling temperatures up to 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius), and is so parched no standing water exists. “They probably satisfy their water requirements through the moisture in their prey, and on having extremely effective physiological and behavioral adaptations,”
The Saharan cheetah is listed as critically endangered on the 2009 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
The photos are part of the Sahara Carnivores Project 
Saharan cheetahs appear to have different colour and spot patterns compared to common cheetahs that roam elsewhere in Africa.
However, “very little is known about the behavioural differences between the two cheetahs, as they have never been studied in the wild,” says Dr Rabeil.
“From observations of tracks and anecdotal reports they seem to be highly adaptable and able to eke out an existence in the Termit and Tin Toumma desert.”
