Cheetahs are known for being the world’s fastest land animal! They can achieve 70mph (110 km/hr) for just under a minute. At 4 strides per second and then being air bound 2 times per stride: That’s 8 times they are completely off the ground per second! Unlike other big cats, cheetahs have a "true purr" but cannot roar. Cheetahs typically run each day at Busch Gardens, FL for spectators to admire. Needless to say, quite a bit of dust is stirred and lingers.
