    There is something here, but it cannot be Identified. I think it is a cat of some sort. #impossible

    It's a big spotted cat - leopard or cheetah. Given the open short grass habitat, my money is on #cheetah

    Leopard is my guess. It holds up the tail, see this in more images of leopards than cheetahs. There's a tree the leopard can climb.

    It could be this kind of posture - http://talk.snapshotserengeti.org/#/subjects/ASG000s9qu
    Any Scientists around to advise us?

    The tail is thin n seems banded, Leopard tails are bit thicker and start to have rosettes appear, I'd go for #Cheetah.
