Elusive
The fastest land animal in the world, a cheetah can reach 112km/h in just three seconds – that’s faster than a sports car accelerates! Its body has evolved for speed, with long legs, an elongated spine, adapted claws to grip the ground and a long tail for balance. Cheetahs’ bodies are uniquely adapted to help them reach top speeds, from their long, slender limbs and hard foot pads to the flexible spine that gives them their long stride.

يُعدّ الفهد الصيّاد أسرع حيوانٍ على وجه الأرض، إذ يمكنه أن يبلغ سرعة 112 كيلومتراً في الساعة في ثلاث ثوانٍ فقط، أي أنّه أسرع من سيّارات السباق! تطوّر جسد هذا الحيوان مع الوقت ليساعده على زيادة سرعته، فأصبح يتمتّع بقدمَين طويلتَين وعمودٍ فقري طويل، إضافةً إلى مخالب متكيّفة ليتشبّث بالأرض، وذيل طويل ليحافظ على توازنه. يتميّز جسد الفهد الصيّاد بخصائص فريدة تساعده على بلوغ أقصى السرعات، بدءاً من أطرافه الطويلة والمرنة وكعوب أقدامه الصلبة، وصولاً إلى عموده الفقري المرن الذي يسمح له بالتمدّد فيقفز لمسافاتٍ طويلة.
