Informatie over Cheetah
One of the impressive big cats that can be found in Africa: the cheetah! This predator is slim and has muscular, long legs — in relation to its body size when compared to other cats — a small, rounded head that is set on a long neck and a flexible spine. It also bears distinctive black “tear tracks” running from the inside corner of each eye to the mouth that may serve as an anti-glare mechanism for daytime hunting. They usually prey on small antelopes such as Thomson’s gazelles and impalas but also hunt small mammals and birds.
