About this book

Do you know where the word 'cheetah' comes from? That they can reach a top speed of 60 miles per hour when running? Or that the Ancient Egyptians used to keep cheetahs as pets? Become an expert on these fascinating big cats with this beautifully presented book, packed full with stunning photographs of cheetahs in their natural habitat. Cheetahs is a great introduction to the world of animals – where they live, how they grow and learn, what they eat and the dangers they have to face. Animal Lives has all the facts on your favourite animals. Each title in this appealing series takes an up-close look at a different creature, exploring habitat, conservation and animal adaptation, as well as looking at the life cycle of the particular animal and the way the young survive – often against tremendous odds.
