Cheetah

At A Glance

  • Conservation Status: Threatened
  • Cheetahs are the world's fastest land animal—capable of reaching speeds up to 70 miles per hour. Throughout history, these remarkable cats have adorned the courts of kings, queens, and emperors, and their amazing grace and beauty still captivate the world today.

    The Zoo has several cheetah wildlife ambassadors, and you may see a cheetah participating in our Animals in Action experience.
