Cheetah facts • The cheetah is the fastest land mammal on the planet, reaching speeds of up to 87 kilometres per hour. Cheetahs mainly hunt during the day to avoid competition with larger predators such as hyenas and lions which usually hunt at night
Cheetahs speed limit • Cheetahs can be fast, but they can only last running really fast under 45 seconds. If the cheetah doesn’t make its kill in 45 seconds it stops and takes a little rest. Which give the animal a big time to run. It is over impossible to outrun a cheetah, only some animals like gazelles can outrun the fast vicious cheetah.
Cheetahs and Other Cats • There are some other cats that are more stronger, bigger, and fiercer. Cheetahs are the fastest cats, tigers are the strongest cat, and lions are the biggest cats. Unlike other cats Cheetahs can run 60 miles per second
Cheetahs adaptations • The Cheetahs very long tail is used for balancing the body while running at its prey. When female cheetahs go out and hunt prey they have to first hide their babys in the tall grass so they can camouflage and look fierce. This speed is a result of several adaptive traits working together. They have a slight frame and long legs that not only help with speed but also agility during a chase. Their agility allows them to change direction quickly to follow running prey.
Tarbiyah connection • Even though the cheetah cant pray every breath it takes it gets a good deed.
