Cheetahs eat smaller animals, which are easy for them to catch
Cheetahs eat mainly wildebeest calves
Another popular prey would be the antelope or the gazelle.
Even though they are fast, they can be easily brought down with one bite to the spine. Antelope Gazelle Wildebeest
Calf Next up is the location.
95% of cheetahs are on the continent of Asia
In Asia, they are in the Middle east, India, and Somalia
In the Middle East, they are in a small part of Iraq
The population in Iraq is decreasing because of the increasing wars going on there
The most abundant population is in India Now, here are some reproduction numbers.
Cheetahs can reproduce at any time of year
Usually, cheetah mothers have 3-5 cubs at their birth
The cubs live with their family 1 1/2 years to 2 years
Before they move out, they are taught to hunt and live on their own Here are some numbers about their endangerment
There are approximately 8-10,000 cheetahs left in the world
They have an 8-10 year life span
100,000 cheetahs in 1900 (that's an average of 813 dying per year!)
They are hunted for their spotted skin and fluffy fur coat Jackets like these are being sold all across the globe. They are priced very high because of how exotic they are. THE END!!!:)
