    Wildebeest or Gnu (Connochaetes taurinus)An adult male blue wildebeest stands its ground after facing the sudden presence of a single cheetah in its territory. During mating season male wildebeests fearcely defend their territory, which eventually will be visited by a herd of females. He will try to hold them in its territory and mate while defending them from other male intruders. Adult wildebeests are generaly not in the cheetah's menu. They are too big and strong and cheetahs would avoid any risk of injury during hunting, however, many newborn and younger wildebeest are often taken down by cheetahs.
