Information

In Real Life

The cheetah is the fastest land animal. Despite running up to 70 miles per hour, it can't run very long, or it might overheat. The favorite meal of a cheetah is Thomson gazelle. Young male cheetahs often hang out together in small groups called "coalitions" from 2 to 4. A male and female can spend a few days together when they mate, and then, after about 3 months, the female alone can have up to eight cubs per litter. The average is 4. She must move her cubs every day to keep lions, leopards, and hyenas from eating them. The cheetah is endangered mainly because of habitat destruction and fur coats. There are 12,000 cheetahs in Africa and 200 in the Middle East.
