Scientific name: acinonyx jubatus
The cheetah is the only cat that cannot climb trees. The cheetah also can run much faster than any other kind of cat. Cheetahs eat mainly small antelopes and the young of larger animals like baby zebras and baby wildebeast. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, reaching speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 460 metres (1,500 feet), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 110 km/h (68 mph) in three seconds, faster than most supercars.
