Cheetahs

Cheetahs are another kind of big cat. Cheetahs are the fastest animals on land. They can run more than sixty miles (97 km) an hour, about as fast as a car on the highway. A cheetah’s legs are long and powerful. Its long claws help it get a strong grip on the ground.

Cheetahs live by themselves or in small groups. During the hottest part of the day, they lie in the grass under a tree to keep cool.

Cheetahs run so fast that they can reach a speed of forty-five miles (72 km) an hour in two seconds!
