cheetah definition and meaning

What is a "cheetah"?

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large and distinctive big cat known for its incredible speed and sleek appearance. It is the fastest land animal, capable of reaching speeds up to 70 miles per hour in short bursts, making it an exceptionally skilled hunter. Cheetahs have a slender body, long legs, and a small head with distinctive black tear marks running from their eyes down to their mouth, which help reduce glare from the sun while hunting. They have a tawny coat with black spots that provide excellent camouflage in the grasslands where they typically hunt. Cheetahs are diurnal, active during the day, and primarily feed on small to medium-sized ungulates, such as gazelles and springboks. They are known for their exceptional eyesight and use their keen vision to scan the landscape for potential prey. Cheetahs are found in various parts of Africa and a few isolated populations in Iran, and they are considered a vulnerable species due to habitat loss, hunting, and other threats. They are known for their unique hunting strategies and are admired for their remarkable speed and agility in the wild.
