Caption: Cheetah yawning. View of a cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) yawning showing its teeth. It has large, sharp canines which it uses to deliver a killing bite to its prey's neck. Cheetahs are carnivorous cats which inhabit the open plains of Africa and parts of Asia. They are the fastest land animal, able to reach 110 kilometres per hour in short bursts. They use their speed to catch antelopes, their main prey, by sprinting at them from close range, having hidden themselves nearby. Females are solitary animals, unless they are with their cubs. Males live alone, or with one or two others. However, large groups of mixed sex have been seen. Photographed in the Masai Mara reserve, Kenya.
