These cats rely on their considerable speed over short distances. Of up to 400 metres when hunting. Their long legs have non-retractable claws. This feature provides extra grip. On the ground when running. It’s tracking, is also aided by excellent sight. The species is not dangerous to man. When encountered on foot. A cheetah will look long and hard in your direction. And then move off at high speed. They can yet be aggressive under captive conditions. It is always advisable to handle them with care. A wack in the face with those long claws. Will not be forgotten.
