Cheetah Facts For Kids Ages 6-8
In the Clouducated Kids Nonfiction Book, Cheetah Facts For Kids, you will learn many interesting facts about cheetahs.
- Cheetahs are fast runners: Cheetahs are elegant and graceful animals that are known for their ability to run faster than any other animal for short distances. They are fast sprinters! Cheetahs can take off from a standing position and accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour (0-95 km/h) in 3 seconds!
- Cheetahs are made for running: A cheetah’s body, which is slender and light, is made for running. Its tail helps it to turn in the direction it wants to go. A cheetah has great agility, which means it can move quickly and easily. It can leap sideways, make quick and sudden turns, and slow down quickly.
- Cheetahs have claws: Cheetahs do not have pockets for their claws like other cats. Most other cats have claws that can be pulled up inside the pockets on their paws. This keeps the claws nice and sharp when they need them. A cheetah’s claws are always exposed and therefore not as sharp as other cats.
- Male cheetahs form coalitions: Male cheetahs usually group together with their brothers, although they sometimes live alone. These groups are called coalitions. Male cheetahs are very territorial and mark their territory by urinating on rocks, termite mounds, fallen logs, and trees. All of the males in the coalition help to mark the territory. They defend their territory by fighting and possibly killing other male cheetahs that trespass. They will share their territory with female cheetahs, though.
