CHEETAH



By Dale
Checked by Cameron
Cheetahs are the only cat that cannot their retract claws.
Black tear tracks, that run from the eye to the chin, on the cheetah could be used as an antiglare system for daytime hunting.
Cheetahs can run 100km p/h which makes them the fastest land animal.
They can live up to fifteen years but habitat wreckage, low numbers of prey, disease and high cub death rates could prevent them living that long.
Cheetahs have a very different but interesting body structure which gives them their amazing speed.
