Animal Reports!


Here is an example of one of the animal reports we have been working on for this term! Thanks for volunteering to put your work on here Jono!

Cheetah

A cheetah is a great animal and it is very friendly. It lives in the grassy lands of East Africa, a list of scientific classifications’ for a cheetah are, phylum, chordate, filidae, acinony, and jubatus!

The amazing cheetah looks like and has solid spots and stripes at the end of the tail. There feet are 2.3 to 2.8 meters long. The female body can weigh up to 41 to 50 kg and the male body can weigh up to 50 to 64 kg. Their special moves are speed to catch their prey, claws for fighting and camouflage to hide from getting eaten.

Cheetahs can be found in the tropical grass lands with light shrub cover it’s found in Africa. The cheetah is suited to the environment because it likes hot, dry and grassy lands.

The cheetah is a wonderful carnivore. Cheetahs eat impala, springboks, gazelle, warthogs, lesser, kudu and black buck. It kills its prey and ambushes within springing distance.

The cheetah is antique amongst Africa. During the day they avoid large predators like the lions for a competition for their food. Their life age can go up to 10 - 12 years old.

There are 8,500 cheetahs living in the world and the population is slightly decreasing. We could cut the amount of cheetahs dying each day. We chose this animal because we wanted to learn and discover more things about the great cheetah.
