Big Cats

Cheetah

They have to find food at least every three days or they will get too weak to continue hunting.

Where do Cheetahs live?

Most wild cheetahs are found in eastern and southwestern Africa. Their are only 10,000-15,000 of these big cats that remain in the world. These cat are under pressure as the wide-open grasslands their habitat is disappearing due to the hands of human setters. This quite sad because their would only be two more decades to see these amazing big cats in the wild.

Groups and No Groups

Males go into groups their are two all the way up to six members in their group, they will stay in that same group from the time they were born to the that they die. Females are much different from males because they don't go in groups. Female cheetahs are alone except when they have cubs and will leave their sibling when they are as young as two years of age.

Mating

Males are ready to mate they as young as a year old, but they dont mate until they are three years of age.
