Cheetahs were so popular in India that the great Akbar was said to keep 1,000.

A cheetah cub will eventually get a black underbelly which then becomes spotted. A young cub will have a long gray blue coat.

Cheetah comes from an Indian word meaning “spotted one”

In some areas of Africa 50 to 75% of cheetah cubs die before three months because of disease.

Cheetahs camouflage themselves with their surroundings .They can get away very quickly because of their speed.
