INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)
Location: Africa and Southwestern Asia
Size: 135 cm long body + 84 cm long tail weight: 65 kg
Diet: gazelles, impala and similar mammals
Conservation status: Vulnerable
Interesting facts: female gives birth to 1-5 cubs who have long mane on their heads and necks. Only mothers care for kittens | cheetahs are the only big cats, whose claws are always visible, they can not hide them | cheetahs with very rare amazing dark colouring and dark stripes on their backs are called ,,the king cheetahs“ | cheetah is the fastest mammal, as it can run 110 km per hour while chasing the prey. But cheetah can run so fast only for very short distance | cheetahs have very flexible backbone

I am going to Prague soon! I'm assuming the zoo is very nice? Would it be worth going in the winter? Excellent photo, btw :P

I agree with BigPolarFox, they are one of the most beautiful big cats, and are represented in domesticated cats sometime. :heart: My favorite big cat.
