Cheetah Poem

Cheetah, cheetah,
cheetah doll
Cat with spots,
Such a skinny cat with dots…
Fastest runner,
On the Earth
When it races,
Comes in first!
Bursts of speed,
Quite a blast,
Cheetah runs,
Really fast...

cheetah runs

The cheetah is the fastest land animal. It can reach speeds of 75 mph (120km/h).
Although cheetahs are great sprinters, they can not sustain their speed over long distances.
Cheetahs are the only existing feline that do not possess retractable claws.
Cheetahs are an endangered species, with most living in Africa, although there is also a small population in Iran.
