Cheetah at Tiergarten Schönbrunn (Vienna Zoo - Austria)

Cheetahs are found primarily in the eastern and southern ranges of Africa south of the Sahara Desert, with small populations in North Africa and Iran. They are neither solitary nor social but are a little of both. Females are solitary except when they have young. Some males are solitary, but related males, usually brothers, live in small groups called coalitions. Adult males are larger than females and have a "mane" on the shoulder area that can also be seen on cubs. Cheetahs are peaceable except at breeding time, when males fight over females and have been known to kill each other. Cheetahs hunt alone and don't have any of the group behaviours that lions do. The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal;
as fast as 112 to 120 km/h (70 to 75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 500 metres (1600 ft),
and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in three seconds.
