Are cheetahs dangerous?
Not really.Cheetahs are not aggresive creatures and they are very shy and is usually afraid of humans.But do not cause a cheetah to chase you! Many people get a mixed thought about cheetahs and say that they will eat you, but are in fact very fragile and would most likely not kill a human. They are not built for taking on stronger foes.
no they are very loving and they enjoy to eat human flesh. stupid of course they are.

Genetics is the prime reason why cheetahs are going extinct. It is thought that from 10-12,000 years ago due to a catastrophic event, the population was reduced to less than 7 animals. These animals then inbred with their brothers and sisters to produce a genetic line that is 97% identical. Humans a…re approximately 70% identical, and lab rats are 97% identical due to inbreeding. Because there is not very much diversity in the genetics of the animals, it leads to the same problems that we as humans have when we inbreed. Detrimental genes are expressed homozygously which means that fewer offspring are viable. Even when imported from different parts of the country, scientists still find it difficult for cheetahs to achieve live births. A second, less reason is Habitat loss. Cheetahs are forced into ever smaller areas where they have to compete with other predators like lions, leopard and hyena. Cheetahs like the other predators mentioned are territorial and when their territory overlaps that of say a lion, the lions would kill the cheetahs as to eliminate competition for food. Farmers see them as pests and would trap, shoot or poison them. The reason for this is livestock loss. A goat or sheep is a much easier meal than an impala. Cheetahs are endangered because the genetic pool is so small. Also because of competition with other larger predators, habitat loss and poaching Also, most cheetahs are from the same family some how. If they breed, their is an increased chance of birth defects. Eventually, cheetahs will die out. (MORE)
Hunting, habitat degradation and fragmentation, desertification, and direct killing of wildlife that the Cheetah preys upon are all factors responsible for the chronic decline of the Cheetah in Asia. The Asiatic Cheetah exists in very low numbers, divided into widely separated populations. Its …low density makes it more likely to be affected by a lack of prey through livestock overgrazing and antelope hunting, coupled with direct hunting by humans. Cheetah's were widely hunted by humans for decades and that is the main reason for their drastic decline in numbers. Though the African cheetah is found in more numbers than their asian cousins, they too are threatened due to habitat loss and hunting. (MORE)
Cheetah is the name of the chimpanzee in the Tarzan movies of the 1930's and 40's. The series starred Johnny Weismuller, the Olympic swimming champion, as Tarzan. Cheetah was comic relief for an exciting adventure serial.
Roar.. Cheetahs don't roar. . Cheetahs are the only one in the cat family that cannot retract their claws. It gives them traction for speed. . Cheetahs also don't run fast for very long, they run in short sprints, reaching speeds of over 60 miles per hour. . i love you and yes cheetahs rour

They run like heck outta there! Seriously, a cheetah is the fastestland animal in the world, and if it can, can easily out run a prideof lions/lionesses or a lone leopard. Their camouflage helps hidesit from lions, leopards and hyenas, even though these animals don'tactually prey on the cheetah, but… rather choose to steal thecheetah's meal. If a cheetah gets caught though, it tries to useits teeth and claws to fight the grip of the lion or leopard, butchances are the cheetah will lose in this battle if it cannot getaway as fast as possible. The Cheetah protects itself through coloring and its speed as wellas teeth/claws and its fast running. a cheetah does not generally need to protect itself but a femaledoes need to protect her cubs. unfortunately their bodies are notbuilt for fighting and protecting - more for running fast to catchprey. they can run at the animal that is disturbing it and try toscare it away and swerve around it whilst avoiding the attackersattacks by maneuvering around it with its agile body. They protect themselves by using the claws and teeth Cheetahs are big predators and don't have any predators except whenthey're born. 80% of cubs are eaten by lions. Cheetahs do not roar,but they hiss and chirp when confronted. They also are the onlycats in the world that do not have retractable claws. They spraytheir territory for one defense, but the largest defense is alsotheir offense. Speed, cheetahs are made for speed. They are the quickest landmammals on the planet. Basically they combine Speed, claws, andteeth with its teeth and claws Cheetah can protect it self by running fast and use their teeth. Cheetah's run from their predators, but after a while they can run out of breath. Cheetah cubs, however, are covered in a thick mantle on their coat, which is sort of like camoflaugh. When curled into a ball, the coat fools its predators into thinking the cub is a honey badger, (one of the fiercest creatures in Africa!) It has a force shield around it and laser beams in their eyes, also their spots turn multicoloured to confuse the enemy * they use their speed i know there would be others but the only one i can think of because it is so fast Cheetah take out their claws and attack another thing is they warn the predators by hissing at them. with there claws and there chest mighty strong (MORE)
Cheetah's eat small and medium sized animals like antoplope and bufflo. To cacth there food they sneak up on the animal and when the get close enough they pounce on it. If it starts to run away the sheetah chases the animal but 1/2 the animal runs away from the cheetah. .
From its head to body it measures 44-53 inches. The tail is 26-34 inches. It weighs 88-183pounds
Female cheetahs are generally solitary animals, but the males form coalitions so as to maximize coverage of the available females in their territory .
It's not that easy to measure how dangerous animals are. . It becomes a mix of the ability to do damage and how likely theanimal is to attack. . Cheetahs are solitary animals, meaning if one gets injured,there's no one that can hunt for them while they recover. They alsohunt by speed, meaning they…'re quite slender compared to the otherbig cats. . This adds up to an animal that really doesn't like to fightanything that looks big enough to fight back, like a human. . But they still have teeth and claws big and sharp enough to tearthrough the hide of antelopes, and can easily do serious damage toa human, should the cheetah choose to try. . So, compared to leopards, tigers and lions - who occasionally dobecome man eaters, cheetahs are less dangerous. . But less dangerous doesn't mean "safe". . It's very unlikely that a cheetah would deliberately try to killa human, which lions, tigers and leopards sometimes do. But acheetah still can do a lot of damage only trying to get away, or tobe left alone. Humans are the cheetahs biggest threat. They may be very weak, butthe world really couldn't live with out them. The gazellepopulation would grow so immense that if one got an illness, itwould spread through out the entire population and on to othertypes of animals. (MORE)

Cheetahs could eat other cheetahs, but it is highly unlikely sincethey tend to be in places where their prey is most numerous. Sincecheetahs hunt and live alone, they would have to somehow bestarving to death in order to result in killing another cheetah. Not normally, although males will sometimes …kill kittens to bring the mother into estrus. Yes it could happen but very unlikely. (MORE)
They are not that aggressive so they will either run or fight, depending on the animal.
The Sanskrit word citrakÄyaá¸¥, probably arose several centuries BCE. We cannot be certain because it was so long ago. It is from this word, which means "variegated", that the word "cheetah" is derived. Long ago, the cheetah ranged over most of India and throughout much of the Middle East. …Peoples of those regions would have been familiar with these cats. (MORE)
The female cheetah will find a male cheetah and make herself available. The male inserts his penis into the female's vagina. Then the male will ejaculate sperm into the female's reproductive system. This fertilizes the ovum that is freed in the female. The process is similar to the conception of a h…uman child or the young in all mammals.. In a similar manner to any other mammal. . The Male Gets on top af the female. . Pretty much like domestic cats and dogs, but with a bit moresnarling. For Cheetah there is no regular breeding season. Cubs are born in all year around. They achieve sexual maturity at approximately 20-23 months old. The female in heat squirts urine on bushes, tree trunks and rocks to attract a male. Since males and females know each other because their hunting ranges overlap, the receptive female responds to the yelp by a dominant male and mating occurs immediately. They stay together for 1-2 days and mate several times. Mating can take place year-round, but peaks during the rainy season (November to May). Like most cats, cheetahs are mating-induced ovulators, which means that they do not ovulate until after mating has occurred. (MORE)
I don't think so. I mean, I have some at home and they like me a lot. But I don't know if they're nice to anyone else because I haven't seen any of my friends in a while. Wonder if they moved away. Also, don't feed them drugs.
Well they hunt for pray, and they run fast, up to 80 MPH their thefastest LAND animal on the earth! They sleep. A lot. Like 14-16 hours a day. They walk their territory, mark it, chase off smaller predators, run from larger predators. They hunt. They make baby cheetahs. That's pretty much it.
cheetahs face people Even as one of the top predators in Africa, cheetahs are considerably weak and vulnerable to many life-threatening situations on a daily basis. A cheetah must hunt prey animals that are small (if the target is too large it could cause fatal harm to the cheetah via powerful kicks… or trampling), and their favored prey are usually very fast. Many hunts end in failure and waste precious energy, which is a danger in itself for a feline that relies solely on incredible and tasking bursts of speed to survive. Lions will kill cheetahs if given the chance, because they perceive other predatory animals as competition. Hyenas and leopards are larger and more powerful than cheetahs and will catch and eat them if given the chance. And with dwindling territories and the frustration of missed meals on the plains, cheetahs can also be endangered by native people if the cheetahs stalk or kill domestic cattle and goats. Even as the fastest land animal in the world and a top predator, cheetahs rank very low in the African hierarchy--and they know it. (MORE)
The cheetah is a cat with claws that do not retract. This makes them quite unique among the cats.
The cheetah is to be an endangered species.

The main predators that hunt cheetahs are us, humans. It is really quite horrible actually because they either skin them for bags, boots, rugs, etc.
Cheetah's are carnivores who feed on herbivores like gazelles, wildebeest etc. They are not known to attack or kill humans but they can be dangerous if we get too close to them. by instinct they might attack us esp female Cheetah's that are rearing pups.

Poachers, lions killing cubs, hyenas taking kills. Also, in one point in history there were only a handfull left so now the cheetahs have been close bred which makes certain diseases/illnesses more common for them now than back then.
Cheetahs can eat each other, but they wouldn't do that. Animals usually don't eat their own kind.
No, i do not think it is possible to be a cheetah. It would be very cool to be one but i rarely think it is possible!
Cheetah's are wild carnivores and are extremely dangerous. Usually they might not attack humans but when threatened they might attack and sometimes attacks from adult cheetah's can be fatal too.
cheetahs are solitary because if they have to hunt for others, they wouldn't get enough to eat for themselves.
Cheetahs are no breed they are one species. But there are different breeds of the species, there is the king cheetah. Here are some facts about what the king cheetahis like and how they are different to the normal cheetahs. The King Cheetah is even rarer than the regular one. It easy to tell the… two apart. On a king cheetahs back there's 3 distinct black lines, their tails are bushier, the tails are more striped and the spots are fullerthan a normal cheetahs. A king cheetah lives in the same environment and acts the same, they even live and breed with normal cheetahs. There was a debate about whether the king cheetah was a whole separate species, a sub-species, a colour phase and even a cheetah-leopard hybrid as analysts confirmed that a king cheetahs pattern was more leopard like than cheetah, but it is still a cheetah. A king cheetah may even be born to two normal cheetahs if there is a king cheetah in the family (ancestors). If the two parents are king cheetahs it doesn't mean their cubs will definatly be king cheetahs. (MORE)
Yes a cheetah can camouflage. it is a yellow colour with a perticular pattern of spots than can look like seeds on the yellow grass. they keep very low to the ground and this helps them camouflage even more.
it comes in through their nose and out throught their mouth wierd that's just like a normal living thing
if they were to race the cheetah would win but if they were to fight the tiger would win
The two most dangerous threats to cheetah which may lead the species to become extinct are: . Loss of habitat, caused especially due to human encroachments. . Cheetah's low beta diversity, i.e, to have a variety in the same species.
1.) They are both cheetahs. 2.) The cheetah is is the parent to the cheetah child
Cheetahs in the wild arae mainly solitary animals. They don'tform packs. Males and females only come together for mating anddon't really hang out together outside that. Brothers from the same litter may stay together for a while butthat's about it. And with not much of a social structure, no point i…n having a"king". A king cheetah is just an animal with slightly different markingsthan the average cheetah, mainly two stripes running down theback. (MORE)
No actually. A white cheetah is just a differentially in the fur color. Instead of gold it appears white, like an albino.
Adult Cheetah's have no natural enemies or predators. They are too fast to be caught by any other animal. However, the youngsters are vulnerable to animals like lions and hyenas. Apart from this, humans are the biggest threat to cheetahs. Humans have hunted them for centuries almost wiping them …out in Asia and driving them to low numbers in Africa. (MORE)
you run into a school with knives, guns, and home-made flamethrowers then start lighting the place up. And when you are done you kill yourself (Incidentally, that would also be extremely stupid and you would be known as a dangerous idiot - or worse language).
im going to say its claws, its bite its stealth, stamina, speed, strength and yeahhhs
yes bcause the prey is there food so that's why there dangures to other animals.
They are carnivores. they are fast, and they are equiped to kill other creatures for food. they are strong.
Cheetahs often stick in groups to help each other out. When one cheetah is injured, the other cheetahs help that injured cheetah to move on.
Cheetahs can be killed by Lions, Leopards, packs of Hyenna or African wild dogs. Though very fast they are able to be wounded by hoofs and horns of their prey. Cheetahs escape danger by climbing trees.
The male cheetahs live together in groups, most of the time the male cheetahs are brothers. While the females live alone and take care of the cubs. If a female gives birth to two males and a female the males will grow up and live together, while the female cheetah will go live on her own until she i…s ready to have a littler. (MORE)
Cheetahs are dangerous because even though they are quite lightweight for their size, they are still big cats with sharp teeth and long claws. Cheetahs are also the fastest mammals on earth.
A mother cheetah looks after her young by moving its den every few days, to keep pretators from tracking the cubs down and eating them. The mother will also trap small animals, and bring them to the den for the cubs to play with and build their hunting skills. The mother cheetah also hunts for the c…heetah cubs until they are old enough to take turns hunting. Then the mother cheetah, when the cubs are old enough to look after themselves, moves out, leaving the cheetahs to survive by themselves. (MORE)
a new cheetah is endangered because the baby cheetah does not know how to take care of itself so the baby cheetah is an easy prey for most predator
Hunters are a big danger for cheetahs. The hunters track down the animal, and kill it. Diseases are also a threat to cheetahs.
It depends... It all depends on the situation. Animals at the top of the food chain like Cheetah's aren't really scared of anything. But they keep a wary eye out for any other creature that does wonder into their domain. And of course, a big part of this is the territory cheetah's have. Especi…ally the large male cats; they make sure to mark their territory so that others, when they come across the boundary markers of scent, know right away to stay out and therefore keep each from meeting most of the time.
