Cheetah


Cheetahs can be found in wide open savannas. The cheetah eats small antelopes like Springbok, Steenbok, Impala, Duiker and Warthog. The Cheetahs predators are eagles, humans, hyenas and lions. There camouflage is its greatest defence. Cheetahs are the fastest land animal and have been clocked at 114km/h. The name cheetah comes from a word that means spotted one in India. The young cub has a black underbelly and a grey blue coat. Early on people used to train cheetahs for hunting. Cheetahs were so well liked that a man kept bout 1000 of them.
