Quick facts about cheetahs Scientific classification Kingdom:Animalia Phylum:Chordata Class:Mammalia Family:Felidae Subfamily:Felinae Genus:Acinonyx Species:A. jubatus Binomail name: Acinonyx jubatus Conservation status: Occurence Did you know...? The cheetah's paws have semi- retractable claws offering extra grip in its high-speed pursuits.
Occurrence of cheetahs Cheetahs live in the Africa, but in the past also in the India. Today, without Africa, they also live in the south edges of the Sahara and isolated location in Iran.
Reproduction Females gives to up to nine cubs after a gestation period of ninety to ninety eight days, although the average litter size is three to five. Cubs weigh from 150 to 300 g at birth. Cheetah cub Unlike some other cats, the cheetah is born with its characteristic spots and with a downy underlying mane on their necks, called a mantle.
Cheetahs social life Unlike males, females are solitary and tend to avoid each other, though some mother/daughter pairs are known. Cheetahs have a unique, well- structured social order. Females live alone except when they are having cubs. The first eighteen months of a cub's life are important - cubs learn many lessons because survival depends on knowing how to hunt wild prey species and avoid other The cheetahs family predators. At eighteen months, the mother leaves the cubs, who then form a sibling, that will stay together for another six months. At about two years, the female siblings leave the group, and the young males remain together for life.
The cheetahs speed Cheetah is the fastest land animal. It reaches speed between 112 and 120 km/h in short distances up to 460 metres. It also has the ability to accelerate from 0 to to 65 km/h in two seconds.
Cheetahs Diet & Hunting Cheetahs hunt by vision rather than by scent. When prey is good visible by them (to within 10-30 metres), then they will chase. They usually chase over in less than a minute, and if the cheetah fails to make a catch quickly, it will give up.
