    Meet the Cheetah

    • 1157 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Cheetah is a fine looking large cat. He is a fast runner. Because he cannot roar, Cheetah is not a member of the 'big cat' family. It is very sad that there are so few alive today. Cheetah has been around for four million years. Fossils have been found all over Earth from Texas to China. About 10,000 years ago, following the last ice age, most Cheetahs were destroyed. Some zoologists, or scientists who study animals, think that a few members of only one Cheetah family survived, the A. jubatus.

    Cheetahs in Zoos Cheetahs in captivity should be left there, not released into the wild, and on the same note cheetahs in the wild should be left there, not brought into captivity. A cheetah in a zoo that is released into the wild may not know what to do, having been cared for by people in an enclosed environment for a number of years and then suddenly thrust out into the wild and on its own may have adverse effects on the cat’s psyche, making it manic or exhibit unpredictable behaviors and endangering

An overstuffed pillow sits in the right hand corner of the bed. It is of cheetah print with dark brown and black tones that greatly contrasts the brightness of the comforter. I, however, believe the fact that it clashes with the bedspread adds mystery: her bed would look like long stripes of zebra and leopard without this huge

    estimate of 15,000 cheetahs in Africa in the 1970’s, a decrease of 30% is estimated over the past 18 years. This reduction is mainly due to habitat loss and fragmentation as well as killing and capturing them in suspicion of being predators of livestock. [1] The vast majority of cheetahs live in small, isolated groups outside protected game reserves where they are often in conflict with humans and livestock, and most populations continue to decline.

    With the snap of the shot, it somersaulted to the ground. My heartbeat quickened as I rushed over to where the bird had fallen . . . Man is a predator and therefore by nature, a hunter. Do not doubt this. While we do not possess the speed of the cheetah, the rapier-like talons of the falcon, nor the strength of the bear, we do have the greatest weapon of all- our superior ability to think. It was the great equalizer that brought us the club, the spear, and the 30.06. For over ninety-nine percent
