Cheetahs 🐆

in #cheetahlast month (edited)

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)is a large cat and the fastest land animal. It has a tawny to creamy white or pale buff fur that is marked with evenly spaced, solid black spots. The head is small and rounded, with a short snout and black tear-like facial streaks. Lions, leopards, and hyenas will try to prey upon cheetah, particularly cheetah cubs. Because they are so fast, adult cheetahs are difficult to catch. Cubs are a different story. When first born, like all kittens, they are utterly helpless and can easily be killed in their nursery den while their mother is off hunting.Cheetahs eat small antelope including springbok, steenbok, duikers, impala and gazelles, as well as the young of larger animals including warthog, kudu, hartebeest, oryx, roan and sable. They also eat game birds and rabbits. About half a cheetah's prey chases are successful.Although they typically prefer open grasslands, cheetahs live in a range of habitats across eastern and southern Africa. Once found throughout Asia and Africa, cheetahs today are racing toward extinction. Loss of habitat and declining numbers of their prey combine to threaten the future of these cats.The Cheetah Is the Oldest Cat on Earth. Cheetahs Can't Fully Retract Their Claws. Cheetahs Have Markings That Help Them See. Cheetahs Like to Hunt at Dusk and Dawn. A Cheetah's Tail Acts as a Rudder. Cheetahs Don't Roar, They Meow, Purr and Chirp. Don't confuse cheetahs for leopars or jaguars. A leopard is a huge, solitary cat native to the woods of southern Asia and Africa. A cheetah is a large, slender, spotted cat found in portions of Asia and Africa. It is the fastest mammal on Earth. A jaguar is a huge, powerful cat that lives mostly in the deep woods of Central and South America. The maximum estimated speed for a cheetah is 80 -120 km/h.
