Cheetahs

Here are a few cool facts about cheetahs.  Female cheetahs hunt alone, male cheetahs hunt in packs.  Cheetahs eat antelopes and gazelles.  They can live in the savannah, dry forests, and scrub forests.  Cheetah cubs have white fur on their back to make it look like They are a dangerous badger.  Cheetahs are the fastest running land mammal on earth.  They can go from 0 to 60 in three seconds! Their top speed is 70 mph.   They can only run for a few seconds, when they run they get super hot, if they get to hot they have to stop.  If a cheetah runs for too long and they don’t stop they could collapse and die because of the heat.  I wish I could run like a cheetah.

Look how slender the adult cheetah is, That helps it run faster and quicker.

 

Leopards

Leopards are the coolest cat I know.  They can see and hear six times better than humans! The spots on a leopard are called rosettes.  All Leopards have a long and puffy tail to help them balance on small or not very stable rocks.  Female leopards can have up to 2 to 4 cubs and the cubs will stay with their mother for about two years.  There is a kind of leopard called the snow leopard.  They can live in Southern Siberia, Kunlun Mountains, and Altai Mountains in Russia.  The snow leopard is my favorite out of all other cats.

 

 

Jaguars

The jaguar is the biggest species of cat in the Western Hemisphere.  Jaguars have a very powerful jaw that can crush skulls and bones! They also have a very powerful bite force, so don’t get bit!  Sometimes jaguars can be black. When they are black they are known as black panthers.  Jaguars can eat deer, monkeys, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, and small mammals.  They can live in grasslands and forests of the Southwestern U.S. into South America.

Tigers

There are two subspecies of tigers that I would like to tell you about.  The Siberian tiger and the Bengal tiger.  The two tigers aren’t much different from each other, except for their size, fur, and where they live.  The Siberian tiger is bigger, has thicker fur, and lives in Russia.  The Bengal tiger is a little smaller and lives in India.  The fur of a tiger gets more orange in the winter and lighter in the summer.  Tigers are the largest cats in the world, are very dangerous, and can run up to 35 mph.  I like the Siberian tiger the best because it’s the biggest of all tigers.
