How Fast Can a Cheetah Run?

Amazingly, cheetahs can reach high speeds of 122 km/h (76 mph). However, this can only be maintained

for a brief sprint (1480 feet). Additionally, this speed is merely an estimate. The average speed of a

cheetah is about 40 mph (64 km/h), yet it may reach its peak speed very rapidly. The cheetah has a tiny skull, long,

skinny legs, and a flat rib cage. By doing this, wind resistance is reduced. Their legs are long and skinny,

yet they are strong. Cheetahs are 4 feet 11 inches long and may weigh 160 pounds.

Cheetah tails, which may grow to be 31 inches (80 cm) long, operate as a rudder to assist guide and steady the animal and increase its speed.
