A JACK Russell shows no fear as she licks cleans the face of a female cheetah. The best friends are both based at the Cheetah Experience big cat centre in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Five-year-old rescue dog Chloe first clapped eyes on 14-month-old cheetah Eden during a morning walk - and now the pair spend hours together playing, nuzzling and cleaning one another. Although they live in separate areas of the park, the duo are reunited whenever the cheetahs are allowed into the big camp. And while they may seem like an unlikely pairing, this little and large-style friendship seems set to go from strength to strength.

Amazing CCTV footage captures the moment a pram rolls under a train - and the baby boy survives
THIS incredible CCTV footage shows the moment when a pram rolls under a train in Melbourne and the baby boys survives - just seven months after an almost identical incident. The 15-month-old boy is the latest accident survived without any serious injuries, thanks to the quick thinking of the driver. He stopped the train as quickly as possible, grabbing the pushchair from under the front of the train. Moments before, the pram was dragged along the tracks for several meters while the boy's grandmother, three year old brother and other members of the public looked on in horror. The grandmother of the boys told paramedics afterwards she only turned away for a second when the near tragedy occurred. She was also with the baby's three-year-old brother, who luckily was standing with her at the time.
