Cheetahs can run as fast as a sports car on the highway! Unlike most cats, cheetahs can’t climb trees and have terrible night vision. They have excellent vision during the day though, which is when cheetahs do their hunting. Cheetahs aren’t able to roar, like lions and tigers do. Instead they make purring and chirping sounds.
This nonfiction/informational book, for upper emergent readers, includes a glossary of new terms at the end of the book.
Dogs and Cheetahs
In captivity, dogs make great companions for baby cheetahs. The relationship is beneficial for the cubs because dogs are also great teachers and are patient with kitty play which usually involves sharp little teeth and claws. The dogs help calm down the normally nervous cats and teach them social cues that the kittens would normally get from their mother.
