M. Trumani, or Amazing Cheetah, was one of the megafauna that existed during the Pleistocene epoch 2.5 million years ago to 10,000 years ago. His death is still is a mystery, but many believe that he was hunted to extinction by the humans. His death was so terrible, we will mourn him forever.

His Life

He resided in North America, mingling with his giant animal friends. M. Trumani lived in savannah near coasts, valleys, and rocky slopes. As a middle schooler, he was a track champion. He absolutely destroyed everyone. That probably explained why he loved to snack on Pronghorn, mountain sheep, and mountain goats. He chased them down while breathing in huge breaths of air with his short face and his large nasal cavity. Other than that, we don’t know much about what he did on his free time.

Though they are similar, M. Trumani and the much smaller African Cheetah are not related. They developed similarly because they lived in similar habitats. M. Trumani's true grandfather was probably more of a puma-like creature.
