Transcript of Cheetah Adaptations

Cheetah adaptations Speed Adaptations that enable the cheetah to run as fast as it does
large nostrils that allow for increased oxygen intake.
enlarged heart and lungs that work together to circulate oxygen efficiently.
During a typical chase, its respiratory rate increases from 60 to 150 breaths per minute.
While running, in addition to having good traction due to its semi-retractable claws, the cheetah uses its tail as a rudder-like means of steering to allow it to make sharp turns, necessary to outflank prey animals that often make such turns to escape. Hunting The cheetah's paws have semi-retractable claws, offering extra grip in its high-speed pursuits.
Black "tear marks" running from the corner of its eyes down the sides of the nose to its mouth keep sunlight out of its eyes and aid in hunting and seeing long distances. Camouflage The cheetah has short tan fur with round black spots measuring from 2 to 3 cm across, affording it some camouflage while hunting.

There are no spots on its white underside, but the tail has spots, which merge to form four to six dark rings at the end. adapt: to change to suit the conditions better at top speed, a cheetah can run as fast as 70mph and can accelerate to 60mph in just 3 seconds.
it only has about 10 seconds to catch its prey because when running at top speed, 10 seconds is enough time to produce enough lactic acid to kill the cheetah completely.
A cheetahs' limbs are loose from thier body to enable quicker movements allowing it to run as fast as it can. facts thanks for Listening
