The cheetah will not move a sick animal

gepardIn the first light of the rising sun, the cheetah climbs onto the termite mound, from where he has a good view of the vast savannah. Perfectly locates a small herd of antelopes. The only thing left is to choose a specific individual and the hunt can begin…
The chances of the chosen victim escaping are almost none. The cheetah can rapidly develop speeds of up to 120 km/h. Only a wrongly calculated distance or incorrect folding of the predator to the decisive jump can save the victim from imminent death. The cheetah does not bite the throat of its prey immediately. First, he inflicts numerous other wounds on her, then, kind of for fun, drags behind him on the ground. This ghastly ritual can last up to an hour…
Cheetahs are great sprinters, but only for short distances. After running 300-400 meters, they start to run out of breath and if they do not hunt game immediately, The next attempt may be made only after a few hours of rest. Ten 1,5- meter long wild cat, weighing up to 65 kilograms, it is completely harmless to man. Only these animals are attacked by cheetahs, that are moving at the right speed. In an hour, a person only runs on average 25 kilometers (antelope: 80), for a cheetah it is almost still. Neither of them will touch the sick individual even then, when he is very hungry. These animals are based on a simple assumption: to, which does not run away, it is distasteful.
