Caption: Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus). Pair of cheetahs, one is resting while the other keeps watch. This big cat relies on speed and stealth to hunt for prey. It can reach a speed of up to 68 miles per hour (mph) in 3 seconds. However, it can only run at such a speed in short bursts of around 460 metres. It hunts other mammals such as gazelles, antelope, young wildebeests and zebras.
