Cheetahs live in South Africa,Asia, and Sub- Saharan. In South Africa it can be dry or wet. Cheetahs usually live up in trees. They like to live in trees because if it is really hot there is that shade. Cheetahs do not live with other cheetahs they are like a lone wolf they always stay by there self.

It's meat time!!!

Cheetahs eats gazelles,wildebeest,impalas, and most animals smaller than its self. When it's food is walking by they will hide in high grass and when the time is right they will pounce on them and kill them by biting their neck. But there is only 1-10 chance of them killing it.

Cheetahs Preys are Lions, and Baboons. That is also another reason why they hide in the tall grass is because when their prey walks by they can wait until they are past then they can run away. That is another reason why sped is a good thing. If a cheetah is in danger most of the time it will use its speed to get away. Or sometimes it will fight but that is not a good idea against lions because it will get killed, we do not want that because people already hunt them for there fur so they are already in danger.

The cheetah is apart of the big Cat family. Cheetahs have 2000 - 3000 spots all around there body. A baby cheetah is called a Cub. When they hunt they bite there neck to kill them. When they kill their food they have to hurry up and take it up in a tree and eat, or just eat it there. They need to do that because another animal will come up and fight for the food because they have a family to provide for to. Cheetahs in zoos can live up to 17 years old. But if they live in the wild the average dies at 8-12 from a animal killing it or just dieing from hunger. Last but not least the most uncommon fact that any body knows...... A cheetah is a animal.
