Cheetahs

The cheetah is a large feline inhabiting most of Africa and parts of the Middle East.. The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal— as fast as 112 to 120 km/h (70 to 75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 500 m (1,600 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to over 100 km/h (62 mph) in five seconds.
This cat is also notable for modifications in the species' paws. It is one of the few felids with semi-retractable claws.[10]
The cheetah's chest is deep and its waist is narrow. The coarse, short fur of the cheetah is tan with round black spots measuring from 2 to 3 cm (0.79 to 1.2 in) across, affording it some camouflage while hunting. There are no spots on its white underside, but the tail has spots, which merge to form four to six dark rings at the end. The tail usually ends in a bushy white tuft. The cheetah has a small head with high-set eyes. Black "tear marks" running from the corner of its eyes down the sides of the nose to its mouth keep sunlight out of its eyes and aid in hunting and seeing long distances. Its thin and fragile body make it well-suited to short bursts of high speed, but not to long-distance running.

Group Details

Cheetahs live in small, isolated populations mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. They range from Senegal east to Somalia and south to northern South Africa.. However, many of their strongholds are in eastern and southern African parks.The cheetah is listed as vulnerable on the World Conservation Union's (IUCN's) Red List of Threatened Animals. Savannas, both open and more densely vegetated, give cheetahs the open areas they need for quick stalks and chases. They are not found in forest areas or wetlands.
