Cheetahs prey

How does a cheetah attack their prey?

The cheetah will typically stalk its prey to within 60-70 m (200-230 ft), charge towards it, trip it during the chase and bite its throat to suffocate it to death.

How does a cheetah survive their prey?

Cheetahs survive the African plains by running down their prey . These big cats can sprint to more than seventy miles per hour, but they cannot sustain their fast pace for long. Within their long, sleek bodies are disproportionately small hearts, which cause them to tire quickly.

What are three animals that are prey to Cheetah?

Cheetah's Prey Animals. Cheetahs enjoy their meat, and some of their common prey animals are smaller antelopes and wildebeests, guineafowl, gray duikers, impalas, kudus, gazelles, springboks, ostriches, jackals, hares and even birds. They are especially fond of hoofed creatures.

What do Cheetahs do to catch prey?

Cheetahs catch their prey by tripping it during the chase; the cheetah can use its strong dewclaw to knock the prey off its balance. The chase is usually over in less than a minute, and if the cheetah doesn't catch its prey quickly, it will often give up rather than waste energy.
