Acinonyx jubatus

The Cheetah is a small wild cat but it is very fast and a skilled hunter. It features a tan coloring with black. It also has rosette markings on it that are unique for each of them. They are about 58 inches length and can range in weight from 75 to 145 pounds based on habitat and gender.

The Cheetah lives on the open plains in areas that are usually very warm including the savannahs. They are good climbers but tend to hunt on the ground. They will take prey that is several sizes larger than themselves into the trees though to keep others from invading the kill.
