Interesting facts about cheetahs

path849.png
  1. The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) have semi-retractable claws which gives him good traction during the race.     

  2. The black ‘tear tracks’ that line a cheetah’s face may prevent the sun from infiltrating and blinding the animal while hunting.

  3. Unlike big cats like the lion, cheetahs are unable to roar. They are closer to your domestic house cat in that they can purr, but much louder.

  4. During a hunt, cheetahs respiratory rate increases from 60 to 150 breaths per minute.

  5. The earliest known depictions are from the Chauvet Cave in France, dating back to 32,000–26,000 BC.
