Cheetah Facts

The cheetah is the world's fastest terrestrial mammal. It has a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). Cheetahs can sprint from zero to 103 km/h (64 mph) in about three seconds.

Cheetahs' night vision is weak.

Typically, females give birth to two to eight pups at a once.

Cheetahs only need to drink water every three to four days.

Cheetahs can sprint quickly, but only for 20-60 seconds at a time. They are usually successful in catching their prey in this time frame.

The sun is deflected by the dark tear lines that flow from a cheetah's eyes, making it simpler for the cats to hunt during the day.
