Caption: Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) crouching. This carnivore hunts small gazelles and other ungulates (hoofed mammals), getting as close as possible to its prey and then breaking into a very fast sprint. It is the fastest living land mammal, capable of running at over 110 kilometres per hour. This can only be sustained for short periods, after which the chase is abandoned and the cheetah must rest. The cheetah is found throughout non-forested areas of Africa south of the Sahara and in Arabia from Iran to Kazakhstan. Photographed in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa.
