The Cheetah’s Predators


Cheetahs are the most amazing animals. Built for high speed, Cheetahs are the experts when it comes to hunting fast, agile prey in broad daylight. Capable of reaching zero to one hundred km/h in seconds, these cats have evolved to develop a sleek and slim body that helps in their highly specialized lifestyle. Although the long, thin body allows Cheetahs to be fast, this also means that they are lighter and weaker when it comes to conflicts with other large carnivores including lions, hyenas and leopards. Larger animals do not miss any opportunity to steal their kill or kill their cubs.
