Cheetahs by Luke
If you had a party your neighborhood Cheetah would not show. That is because Cheetahs usually live alone because they are shy. Males sometimes live with other small groups of other males. Cheetah’s usually hide when hunting prey until they find the right time to attack. They are the only cats that can’t roar.
Cheetahs can run 70 to 75 MPH. They can get Zero to 60 MPH in three seconds. They can run that fast because they have long strong legs and a long tail that helps them stay on the right track when they are running. If you saw a Cheetah you would see an animal covered with tan fur and black spots all over. The Cheetah has two eyes that can see very well. It has a very small head and ears compared to other large cats. Did you know that a Cheetah can be seven feet long?

Did you know that Cheetahs are meat eaters?? Some animals they eat are antelope, wildebeests, ostriches, hares and birds. They can eat up to 30 pounds of food a day. Cheetahs hunt with their eyes to find prey rather than using their sense of smell. They use their sharp teeth to strangle their prey. When Cheetahs are hunting they hide from their prey and wait until the time is right to jump out and chase their prey. Humans, eagles, leopards and lions are a Cheetah’s predator. Cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world, the cheetah is a marvel of evolution. The cheetah's slender, long-legged body is built for speed. Cheetahs are tan in color with black spots all over their bodies. They can also be distinguished from other big cats by their smaller size, spotted coats, small heads and ears and distinctive "tear stripes" that stretch from the corner of the eye to the side of the nose. Cheetahs eat mainly gazelles, wildebeest calves, impalas and smaller hoofed animals. In 1900, there were over 100,000 cheetahs across their historic range. Today, an estimated 9,000 to 12,000 cheetahs remain in the wild in Africa. In Iran, there are around 200 cheetahs living in small isolated populations.Historically cheetahs were found throughout Africa and Asia from South Africa to India. They are now confined to parts of eastern, central and southwestern Africa and a small portion of Iran. Found mostly in open and partially open savannah, cheetahs rely on tall grasses for camouflage when hunting. They are diurnal (more active in the day) animals and hunt mostly during the late morning or early evening. Only half of the chases, which last from 20 - 60 seconds, are successful. Cheetahs knock their prey to the ground and kill with a suffocating bite to the neck. They must eat quickly before they lose the kills to other bigger or more aggressive carnivores. Cheetahs are also typically solitary animals. While males sometimes live with a small group of brothers from the same litter, females generally raise cubs by themselves for about a year.
