Africa's Endangered Animals

-Its favorite animal is the antelope, which is also very fast.
-The cheetah must eat its prey very quickly, or bigger cats, such as the lion or tiger, will come for the meat.
-The cheetah is a prey to tigers and lions.
-Nambia is the most cheetah-populated country.
-Cheetahs live in tall grass, usually in areas that are protected.
-Cheetahs live in a tropical climate. They can, however, survive in cold climates since they have fur.
-The cheetah's sharp teeth make it easy to kill its prey.
-They have very powerful legs, allowing for a quick escape.
-Adult cheetahs tend to live with their cubs, until they grow up and can survive on their own.
Endangerment and Conservation Efforts
-Another reason cheetahs are endangered is because when farmers see them near their crops, the farmers shoot them.
-Now, groups that protect wildlife are setting up protected wildlife parks where cheetahs can roam without the dangers of predators.
-People should donate to save cheetahs because they are one of the most interesting type of cats, and will be extinct in a matter of years without your help. Please, donate today.
