Cheetah takes a nap with guy

Working with animals is a very rewarding experience, whether you do it professionally or during your spare time.

Dolph Volker, a volunteer at the Cheetah Experience in South Africa, Dolph Volker, was working with the big cat population and one of the animals took a liking to him.

As he’s lying in the grass, one of his cheetah friends wanders over and starts to lick the side of his neck.

The Cheetah, named Eden, soon settled down next to the man for an afternoon nap.

As she falls asleep she lets out some big purrs.

While we don’t recommend trying this with Cheetahs in the wild, they are oftentimes docile animals while not on the hunt.
