Facts about Cheetah
The most amazing factor Everything in a cheetah’s body is made for speed. They run so fast that at a time only one foot touches the ground. It has been studied that a dashing cheetah uses the similar mechanism as used in a rear-wheel-drive car. It means all the power comes from its back portion of the body. Their fore limbs help them to steer and balance their body while moving so fast. A cheetah can cover 0-60 mph in just three seconds, which is almost a dream for world’s leading car manufacturers.The fastest land animal is the cheetah. But in the bird family, the peregrine falcon is the fastest which is also the fastest of all in the animal kingdom
Foods and hunting
Cheetahs are carnivores. They find mainly mammals under 40 kg for their food. Hunting is done by them usually on day time. They have a high vision power. Although they can sprint for a long time. But this puts a great strain on their body. Even after a hard cha, so they take rest for half an hour or more before consuming the food. Cheetahs have a very unique style of attack. They firstly start tripping their prey and then they bite on the underside of the throat. The diet mainly depends on the area they live.
Coming to this point it is to be mentioned that the male cheetahs are often very social and they might group together for protecting them. They mainly maintain a short territory and mark it by urinating on trees, logs, termite mounds. Now the female doesn’t make any territory instead of that they make home range which depends entirely on the availability of prey. They usually live for about 12 years span. They comes under the category of Animals with Longest Motherhood Period after Humans.
This is the most interesting part that they have a wide range of communication skills. As I have told earlier that they can’t roar but instead of that they have a wide range of vocalizations. While finding their cubs, the mother cheetah uses a high pitched barking called Chirp. When they make a social invitation to other cheetahs, or while expressing interest, uncertainty they use a sound called chirr. They have seen to be yowling while facing dangers. And purring is mostly used by them while having pleasant times. Also, many such antagonistic localisations are used sometimes. Clicking pictures of animals when they are in the move is something that is not easy but some brave to do this. That is why when you are looking at pictures of animals running, do take the time to look at pictures and enjoy them.
Cheetah bears very light bones and has a small head which allows the air to flow along its body frame which results in enhancing speed. The back legs are very thin and long providing the animal with a forward thrust like a spring. They bear large liver and heart, wide nostrils and increased lung capacity. All of the above features results in a thin and muscular body.
Cheetahs are one of the red-listed animals of this world. Their population has decreased a lot. Cheetah’s beauty is one of its curses they get mainly hunted for their skins and due to lack of aggressiveness the lions, leopards and hyenas become their main predators. Now they are conserved in many Zoos all over the world. But still, try to save them if you really love them. Remember they are one of the most amazing creatures of this world.
