In this video, Dolph Volker, a volunteer at the Cheetah Experience in South Africa, meets with Eden the cheetah.
Eden warmed to Dolph over the course of only a few days, showing how these animals are able to be affectionate, kind, and social, despite most of the footage we see of them focusing on their hunting behavior.
Eden has a special role in the sanctuary where she looks after a handicapped cheetah named Faith.
Dolph Valker feels that Eden is good therapy for anybody in need of it, not just those with special needs.
After this unforgettable encounter, he clearly has a new outlook on and appreciation for cheetahs.
