Mother cheetah and cub.  The following from "Nature": Because the mother cheetah raises the cub alone the cub is vulnerable to predation by other carnivores on the African savannah,  usually the lion and hyena, especially when she is hunting.  Just as alarming, the mother cheetah may down its prey with tremendous speed, only to have the prey taken away by larger predators, typically lions, who travel in packs ("prides").  For more (great article), see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheetah

Formidable predators, dragons(also known as wyrms and drakes) are massive in size with fearsome teeth, deadly breath, vicious claws, and hides like stone. Dragons generally make their home in caves and mountains, far from humankind, but when they come close to people, their huge appetite is generally a source of conflict.

The Dhole also called the Asiatic wild dog or Indian wild dog, is a species of canid native to South and Southeast Asia. The dholes are classed as endangered by the IUCN, due to ongoing habitat loss, depletion of its prey base, competition from other predators, persecution and possibly diseases from domestic and feral dogs. In the summer the dhole reverts to his darker, sleeker coat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhole
