Cheetahs have an average of 2,000 to 3,000 spots. The spots help cheetahs camouflage themselves in their habitats. Cheetahs have solid spots, unlike jaguars and leopards, which have open spots.
Cheetahs are an endangered species found in Iran and parts of Africa. Around 10,000 cheetahs remain in the world. Cheetahs live in open spaces, such as grasslands, plains and savannas. They are the fastest land animals, reaching speeds of 65 to 70 miles per hour. Their tails help them keep their balance as they run. Cheetahs hunt gazelles, wildebeests, impalas, rabbits, birds and warthogs, and they can see up to 3 miles away.
