My Animal Friends: Cheetah
Cheetah
Episode 8  |  NITV  |  March 27, 2018

We are the fastest runners in the world. We hunt our dinner and when we do we can run only for a short distance, we must catch something fast, otherwise we have to stop. If we don't stop we can overheat, and that's a very dangerous condition for us. We also have an extra claw called an dew claw. When we're chasing down a prey, we hook this claw around their legs to topple them over. We can do this running at our top speed. Cheetahs are recognisable by our black spots and they sure do suit us.
