Caption

Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) observing prey (not seen). These carnivores have extremely streamlined bodies with long legs. They hunt small gazelles and other ungulates (hoofed mammals), getting as close as possible to the prey and then breaking into a very fast sprint. The cheetah is the fastest living land mammal, reaching speeds of over 110 kilometres per hour. These can only be sustained for short periods however, after which the chase is abandoned and the cheetah must rest. A. jubatus is found in savannah and lightly- wooded areas of Africa south of the Sahara, and in Arabia from Iran to Kazakhstan.
