Cheetahs are excellent hunters. First of all they approach their prey very carefully until they are within a few meters, then when the time is right, they run at lightning speed. If the fleeing prey suddenly changes direction, the Cheetah can simply turn its body mid-leap. Its flexible spine makes this possible. However, if they have no success after a few hundred meters, they have to give up. The high speed is so energy-sapping, they can only keep it up for a shortundred meters, they have to give up. The high speed is so energy-sapping, they can only keep it up for a short distance.… read more

Cheetahs are fast felines spotted with black.Active during the day, cheetahs reside in the same areas as the nighttime hunters, li...ons and leopards. While the cubs live with their mother, adult males live together in small groups. The secret of the cheetah s speed is in its backbone, nostrils, tail and claws. Long and flexible, this bone stretches and contracts like a spring as it sprints across the savannah. Its large nostrils allow for more oxygen intake. Helping steer, its long tail serves as a rudder, and its claws act as cleats. Preying on gazelles and antelope, the mother cheetah has to make a kill every day to feed her young. Used to blend in with tall grasses, the cheetah has black spots on its tan body, but its tail is covered with stripes.Fun Facts: Faster than most sports cars, the cheetah can reach speeds of almost seventy miles per hour from a dead stop in three seconds.Zoological Name: Acinonyx jubatusConservation Status: VulnerIlePrimary HIitat: GrasslandGlobal Home: AfricaSKU:ADIB0030T0V70 read more
Baby cheetahs are very helpless and only open their eyes after two weeks. When their mother is out hunting, they are completely de...fenseless against hungry lions and hyenas. The best possible camouflage is the only chance they have. A long, silver mane helps them here. It stands up like a Mohican hairstyle and looks like long blades of grass from afar. Baby cheetahs learn to hunt for themselves when they are around six months old. After one or two years, the little ones are out of the woods and can fend for themselves. read more

Giraffe bulls are so large, they can put their head through the window of the second floor of a building and say "hello". Their to...ngue is up to 50 centimeters long, is desensitized to prickly leaves, and has an unusual color: it is dark blue. This color helps protect it from sunburn when giraffes use it to wrap around and pluck leaves. Even animals as large as giraffes need to sleep between meals. When there is no threat of danger, they lie down for a nap, but in the wilderness they mainly sleep standing up. read more
The horns of Oryx antelopes are 120-150 centimeters long. This is where they get their name, because "Oryx" is Greek and basically... means "pointed tool". Lions, Leopards, and hyenas no doubt have to learn the hard way that these antelopes can also use them very well to defend themselves. Its habitat in the desert can reach temperatures of well over 40 degrees Celsius. However the Oryx antelope knows a trick against the heat. It raises its own body temperature until it is higher than that of its environment. This way it can give off heat and absorb "cooler" air. read more
Elephants are known as being thick skinned. However, their skin is so sensitive, they can even get sunburnt. That is why elephants... often throw several layers of mud on themselves. This pleasant "cooling pack" also combats the scorching heat. While elephants cannot hear any better than other animals with their huge ears, they help them to cope with the African heat. When they fan with their ears, the blood cools down and provides them with refreshment. read more

Despite the camouflage spots in their fur, Giraffes do not always remain undetected by predators. But they know to defend themselv...es and can kick really hard with their front hooves. They mainly do this if they want to protect their young, because the adult animals are normally rarely attacked. Anyone who has the opportunity to look at Giraffes from close up can easily distinguish the females from the males. They are somewhat smaller and have thin horns with a small tuft of fur on top. Giraffe bulls, in contrast, have thick horns with no fur on top. read more

The Acrocantho...saurus was around the same size and weight as the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Giganotosaurus. Unlike many other dinosaurs, it had seven openings in its skull rather than five.

I...f a fakir with a "dancing" snake is shown in movies, it's usually a spectacled cobra. Another famous snakes is the King Cobra. With 5.59 meters, it is the longest venomous snake in the world. It may be surprising, but also cobras have enemies. The Indian mongoose (a small marten similar predator) is extremely nimble and outmoves the attacks of the cobra until it is exhausted and vulnerable. read more
Tigers, one of the most endangered animals in the world, are the largest of all living cats. They live in forests, grasslands, and... swamps where they hunt alone for animals such as deer, wild pigs, and buffalo. (They also eat smaller creatures like fish and birds or even other large predators like leopards.) They've been known to eat up to eighty pounds of meat in a single feeding! Tigers can travel for long distances and can leap as much as thirty feet in a single bound. They live alone and only come together to mate; females give birth to two or three babies at a time. Today only six remaining subspecies of tiger remain -- the Bengal, Indochinese, Malayan, Siberian, South China, and Sumatran. read more
