A cheetah is a large wild cat with thin, fragile body and long legs. Cheetahs are big animals that can weigh up to 72 kg (159 lb) or 150 cm (59 in) in length. A cheetah’s fur is known for its beauty – it is yellowish-brown with black spots of various sizes across. The long tail is spotted too and it ends with a white bushy tuft. The head and ears are very small while the eyes are high-set. Cheetahs have black noses and prominent black lines that run from the corner of their eyes to the sides of the nose.
