Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)
Cheetah - A Big Cat?
Cheetah is one of the big cat species. Cheetas are unique and are very intriguing creatures. These felines are famous for their speed—their ability to sprint 120 kilometers per hour makes them the fastest living animals around.
To put the Cheetah's speed into perspective, it has the capacity to go from 0km to 100km in 3.00 seconds flat. That puts it on the same level as the Noble M600, which ranks 8th on the fastest commercially produced cars (by 0–100 km/h acceleration) in the world per Wikipedia.
In fact, according to this list, no car ever beat the Cheetah's 0-100 km/h acceleration speed up until 2005 when the Bugatti Veyron was produced. And all that from nature alone. No research and development investments. Just built in outright by virtue of their species. Isn't that amazing of them?
