Transcript of Cheetah
Does the animal use homeostasis?
A cheetah does maintain homeostasis, if the cheetah is hot then it will sweat to cool off.
How does the animal reproduce?
Females reach maturity in twenty to twenty-four months, and males around twelve months (although they do not usually mate until at least three years old), and mating occurs throughout the year. A study of cheetahs in the Serengeti showed females are sexually promiscuous and often have cubs by many different males.
Which stimulus affect the cheetah's activities?
The cheetah likes to live in an open biotope, such as semi desert, prairie, and thick brush, though it can be found in a variety of habitats. In Namibia, for example, it lives in grasslands, savannahs, areas of dense vegetation, and mountainous terrain. If it doesn't live on an area like this it cannot survive.
Adaptations that help the cheetah survive
What does the animal eat?
The animal is a consumer because it eats other animals. It mainly eats Thomson gazelles, grant gazelles, springbok gazelles, impala, deer, warthogs, wildebeest and zebras.
There are several geographically isolated populations of cheetah, all of which are found in Africa or southwestern Asia. A small population (estimated at about 50) survive in the Khorasan Province of Iran, where conservationists are taking steps to protect them.
It is possible, though doubtful, that some cheetahs remain in India.There have also been several unconfirmed reports of Asiatic Cheetahs in the Balochistan province of Pakistan, with at least one dead animal being discovered recently.
Is it multicellular or unicellular?
What is the cheetah's niche?
Cheetahs are predators, and they play an important role in the food chain. As such, they play an important ecological role in keeping the population size of the prey species under control.
The cheetah has:
A flexible spine
An oversized liver
A thin muscular body
