    The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large cat native to Africa and central Iran. These slender deep chested felines are built for speed and are capable of reaching speeds greater than 110 kilometres per hour in just over three seconds. Their foot pads are hard and less rounded than the other cats and function like tire treads providing them with increased traction in fast, sharp turns.
