Welcome back, today we will learn about Cheetah

The cheetah is a large cat native to Africa and central Iran. It is the fastest land animal, estimated to be capable of running at 80 to 128 km/h with the fastest reliably recorded speeds being 93 and 98 km/h, and as such has several adaptations for speed, including a light build, long thin legs and a long tail. The difference between cheetah and big cats are that Cheetah bur but big cats roar.
Baby cheetahs
 are called cubs and are usually born in litters of three to five. They are blind at birth and are covered with a thick coat of fur, called a mantle, which helps to protect them from predators.
Easily tamed, throughout human history cheetahs were trained for hunting expeditions by peoples as diverse as the ancient Sumerians, the Egyptian pharaohs and, as late as the 10th century, by the Duke of Normandy who was known as William the Conqueror. There are two subspecies of cheetah, the African and the Asian. Cheetahs in the wild (both male and female combined) have an average age span of 10 – 12 years. Cheetahs have certain adaptations, features that an animal develops in order to live in a specific environment, A number of adaptations help the cheetah hunt and run, including large nostrils, a long spine, a light head, and claws that do not fully retract, or go back in.
