NARRATOR: AND NOW IT'S TIME FOR SOME MORE...

"AMAZING ANIMALS!"

NUMBER 400, THE AMAZING CHEETAH!

THIS FAMOUSLY SPOTTY FELINE IS THE FASTEST LAND

MAMMAL ON EARTH!

ANIMAL: NOT AT THE MOMENT SHE'S NOT, I AM...

GET OFF!

NARRATOR: FOUND MOSTLY IN AFRICA,

THESE ANIMALS MAY BE SPEEDY BUT THEIR

POPULATIONS ARE SHRINKING.

A MOTHER CHEETAH LOOKS AFTER HER CUBS UNTIL THEY ARE

AROUND TWO YEARS OLD!

SON: SHE'S TAUGHT US EVERYTHING WE KNOW!

MOTHER: SO GO AND CATCH DINNER WHY DON'T YOU?

SON: WELL MOTHER UNFORTUNATELY DEREK JUST WANTS

TO PLAY FOOTSY!

SON 2: YES MOTHER, SEE?

OW!

MOTHER: OH FOR GOODNESS SAKE!

NARRATOR: CHEETAHS HAVE TO SNEAK UP ON THEIR PREY...

DEER: YEAH RIGHT, WAAA!

NARRATOR: BECAUSE THEY CAN ONLY SPRINT FOR ABOUT 15

SECONDS BEFORE THEY OVERHEAT AND HAVE TO STOP.

CUBS: GO MOTHER, GO MOTHER!

NARRATOR: THEIR UNIQUE SPINE ALLOWS THEM TO STRETCH OUT

AND COVER ABOUT 30 FEET IN ONE STRIDE!

CHEETAHS HUNT DURING THE DAY MAINLY TO AVOID ANOTHER

BIG CAT WHO PREFERS TO HUNT AT NIGHT.

LION: YEAH, ME.

NARRATOR: LIONS WILL KILL CHEETAHS AND

STEAL THEIR DINNER.

MOTHER: WHAT?!

CUBS: SOMEBODY SAY DINNER?

NARRATOR: CHEETAHS HAVE INCREDIBLE EYESIGHT AND

A WIDE FIELD OF VISION.

MOTHER: AND ON THE MENU...

IS THAT AN IMPALA OR IS IT A GAZELLE?

HMMM...

NARRATOR: CUBS EVENTUALLY LEARN TO HUNT THROUGH PLAY,

PRACTICE AND MOTHER'S PATIENCE.

SOON THEY WILL HAVE TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES.

MOTHER: UH, KIDS, WHERE'S THAT LION WHEN I NEED HIM!

CUBS: OH MOTHER!

NARRATOR: THEY MIGHT BE SUPER SPOTTY AND SPEEDY BUT

THE CHEETAH IS A PURRRRFECTLY AMAZING ANIMAL!
