The Extremely rare King Cheetah.
The King Cheetah also known as Cooper's Cheetah, was once thought to be a separate sub-species. But it is actually an African Cheetah exhibiting a rare fur pattern mutation. A recessive gene must be inherited from both parents. First discovered in Zimbabwe in 1926, this very rare animal has only been seen in the wild 6 times. They have been seen in Zimbabwe, Botswana and in the northern part of SA Transvaal province.
The king cheetah is one of the rarest animals in the world. Only ten are believed to exist in the wild, with a further 50 in captivity.
