A beautiful adult cheetah is sitting in grassland, the African Savannah. Softly blown grass and the perched demeanor of the cheetah create in this wildlife photograph a tranquil scene. On this day, a mild breeze is blowing. Most likely giving the wild cheetah a bunch of exciting scents to decipher. The neutral browns are working together with the color of the cheetah’s fur.

Cheetah Sits In High Grass

A cheetah’s face is distinguished by the prominent black lines that curve from the inner corner of each eye to the outer edges of the mouth. This beautiful cheetah is sitting in the grassland, scanning the horizon for prey or other wild animals.

Most cheetahs we find in sub-Saharan Africa. A small population is located in northeastern Iran, although only a few dozen remain there. Given that a cheetah is the fastest land animal on earth, it can run at a speed of 112 km/h / 70 mph in 3 seconds. That is faster as a sports car can speed up!

Sadly, these magnificent wild big cat threats are the loss of habitat and prey, as well as conflict with humans. As a result, it is classified as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. We estimate about 9,000-12,000 cheetahs, which remain in Africa.
