Man Is Napping Under A Tree, Cheetah Sees Him And Decides To Join Him

Wildlife photographer and zoologist Dolph C. Volker has dedicated his life to fighting for animal rights and raising awareness for endangered species.

One day, on one of his volunteer trips, he was tired after a long day in the sun and decided to take a nap in the shade, just under a tree.

It was then that his new friend spotted him, it was a cheetah named Eden who approached him, realized he was harmless after a quick sniffle and decided to snuggle up against him!

To say that Dolph was surprised to find Eden when he woke up would be an understatement. And that was the start of their friendship. A beautiful, amazing, fascinating friendship. Eden looks at Dolph as if he belonged to the same species as her. She cuddles him, nibbles him, purrs and snuggles up to him.
