Fastest Land Mammal

cheetThe name Cheetah comes from a Hindi word meaning “spotted one.” They live in southwestern and eastern Africa. Cheetahs are the only big cat that cannot roar!! instead they are the only big cat that can purr. You can hear them purr their loudest when they are grooming or sitting near other cheetahs. Unlike lions and leopards the cheetah does its hunting during the day. They eat their pray right away because they are not strong enough to hide it or defend themselves. These fast cats can accelerate from 0 to 113 km in just 3 seconds, however they get tired really quickly and can only keep up their top speed for a few minutes.
