Built for speed.....The cheetah can run faster than any other land creature.

0 - 100kmph (62mph) in 3 seconds. You do not want to be the food target in its sights.In this instance she was stalking a herd of female impala.
They can run at 112-120kmph (70-75mph) in short bursts.
They are also one of the few felids with semi retractable claws offering extra grip in its high speed pursuits.

I would like to thank Herman for his UA awarded to me for yesterdays buffalo. I am so chuffed. Also to everyone of you for your continued support of my wildlife images....thank you

Have a great day....tomorrow is FridayGrinGrinGrin

Yes, I have a soft spot for cheetahs.
They can be quite affectionate in a way which is different from a domestic cat.
I knew one once. The relationship didn't blossom because she was quite possessive.

Greatly admire this shot, Colleen.
Shows exactly that pre-chase bunching of muscle.

Not sure about the mph figures quoted but you will know best.

0 - 100kmph (62mph) in 3 seconds........ I wish my car could do that, mind you, I'd probably end up with Whiplash. She looks as though she should be on the hunt for her next meal. A very good image.
