Cheetah Facts:

  • A cheetah doesn’t retract it’s claws when running–rather uses them like cleats to grab the ground.
  • Cheetahs don’t roar like lions. They meow and purr they can also make a chirping sound–similar to a bird.
  • The cheetah is the fastest land animal in the entire world and can run at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour.
  • They have a flexible spine that allows them to stretch and cover so much ground on each stride.
  • Dark ‘tear’ lines that run from a cheetah’s eyes deflect the sun.
  • Although cheetahs are fast, they’re not strong or aggressive–they don’t have strong jaws.
  • Cheetah cubs grow a thick coat of fur on their backs, called a mantle, which protects them from the sun and rain, and also acts as camouflage.
  • The cheetah's long muscular tail help them balance and steer when running.

Cheetahs are built for running not fighting. Most cheetah cubs don't survive as the mom has to leave them to hunt. The cheetah's jaws are weak and when they do hunt they have to eat quick before they get chased away by other animals.

Cheetah's reach speeds of up to 70 miles per hour. They can accelerate from 0 to 68 miles per hour in just three seconds. They can only sustain that speed for short sprints of around 20 seconds. An enlarged heart, lungs and other organs allow them to do this.
