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
