Cheetah Park

The biggest cheetah fan in the world!

Top Cheetah Facts

The quickest creature on land, a cheetah may run up to 96 km/h (60 mph). They live across the majority of the African continent, some southern part of Asian countries and also in the Middle East. Unfortunately, none in my hometown, Bellingham, Washington!

The cheetah is very easily recognized from all other cats, not just by the unique marks, but also by its rangy and loose build, high-set eyes, small head, and flattened, small ears.

Here are a Few Exciting Facts About Cheetahs.


Cheetahs are the quickest of almost all the land mammals.


Cheetahs are in reality able of producing excellent bursts of speed, getting from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in less than three seconds.


Most often regarded the smallest of all the big cats, Cheetahs are unique because they can only purr and never roar such as the other great cats.


An additional distinctive feature of the Cheetah is the presence of the semi-retractable paws which let them sustain their grip on the earth in pursuit of high speed.


Cheetahs also provide distinct marks on their cheeks, similar to ‘tears,’ which represent sunlight and also help the cat to see long distances in the course of a chase.


Basically, they are born with the purpose of killing. Cheetahs have long structured bodies and a tail like a rudder, which supports the cat throughout any chase.


However, some other adaptations can be found which have allowed the Cheetah to develop into a great predator. These consist of big lungs, heart and wide nostrils. These help the cat during a particularly stress-filled charge.


Because of the substantial effort with which the Cheetahs put into hunting, they tire very easily. Their body temperature reaches high levels after their sprint, and they need to rest afterwards. This is the time that cheetahs are susceptible to opportunistic predators.



Because of the levels of competition, cheetahs hunt throughout the day rather than nighttime, and eat immediately after killing the prey.



Cheetahs usually prey upon impalas, springboks, and gazelles by taking a bite at the throat to destroy the windpipe of the victim. Having a success level of almost 50%, Cheetahs are among the most diligent of all the hunting cats.




Cheetah Visitor, Dirty Carpets

As an employee of the local zoo, I gain a lot of spectacular benefits…


That is our newest resident to the zoo, a cheetah cub! Her name is Sally.


It is so difficult to take care of a cheetah cub; the survival rate is so low. We have transported her from Africa and I have her in my home today. I’ll be bringing her to the zoo tomorrow.

If you’re interested in knowing more about caring for cheetahs:

Here’s some information from Pet Helpful.

Here’s a useful forum within Reddit.


After Sally leaves the house, I’ll need to do a big carpet cleaning job. I’ve already booked an appointment with for a THOROUGH cleaning tomorrow. These cubs shed an unbelievable amount of hair!

Here’s another photo – source of the dirty carpets:


Biggest Cheetah Fan!

I grew up with Cheetahs in Africa!

Ever since a child, growing up in Africa, I’ve been the biggest Cheetah fan. I plan to visit later this year, and see them again.

Right now, I’m planning my “safari” back home.

Here’s a photo of my mom back home. She is a natural with the Cheetahs and she is a professional photographer, too!
