Extremely close footage of three captive male cheetahs feeding

Three captive male cheetahs feed just meters away from the filmer at the Ann Van Dyk Cheetah Centre in South Africa.

Footage shows these three big cats named Bow, Buin and Mate chowing down and licking the big food trough clean.

It emerges these three to four-year-old animals have different personalities as a woman describes the pecking order in the group as well as distinct markings not obvious at first glance.

Footage was shot on January 29.
