Favorite thing: The Cheetah is the fastest of all animals with a stop speed of 110 km/h at full sprint. The cheetah's body is slim and aerodynamically designed. The fur of the cheetah is yellow with round black spots which help to camouflage it and black tear lines on the sides of the muzzle. The adult animal weighs up to 65 kg. The Cheetah is often mistaken for a Leopard. It doesn't have the shaped lines on each side of its nose and is thinner and has an extra long tail. They hunt by speed rather than by stealth tactics. Cheetahs eat mostly mammals under 40 kg, like impala, gazelles and Wildebeest calves. The Cheetah hunts usually early in the morning or later in the night when it is not so hot. The chase is usually over in less than a minute. And it often give up rather than waste energy.
