Animals can be fast! With humans maxing out at 28 mph, the cheetah can run a whopping 58 miles-per-hour. However, they are still not the fastest animal in the world. That record is held by an ocean animal and we’ll talk about them another time.David Groves
Cheetahs are notorious for being fast! Growing up, we were told to be fast like a cheetah. Some said that imagine you’re a cheetah chasing a gazelle. I didn’t want to chase gazelles so I said, “I’m going to mix a cheetah and a gazelle and go even faster.”
Close to all wild cheetahs can be located in sub-Saharan Africa, where they inhabit open plains of grassy savannah and forests. A tiny population lives in northeastern Iran, though there are just a few dozen left.Cara Fuller
The bodies of these large cats grow around 4 feet in length, with a tail ranging around 27.56. Their weight varies around 88.18 pounds and males weighing slightly more.
Cheetahs are typically found in groups. Usually a mother and her babies (who remain together for about six months after leaving their mother). Sometimes a group of males live together. Nevertheless, adult female cheetahs appear to be single. They only encounter males to mate with.
Animals that stick together as a family are pretty cool. They raise their young like humans and then let them go once they are ready.
