South African cheetah

The South African cheetah (Acinonyx Jubatus Jubatus), also known as the Namibian cheetah, is the most numerous and nominate cheetah species native to South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Zambia. Since 1986, it has been classified as vulnerable. The Asiatic cheetahs and Sudan cheetahs are closely related to the South African cheetah. Cheetahs live everywhere in Africa except the Western part of Central Africa and the Southern part of Northwestern Africa. Cheetahs are the fastest land animals on earth and they can run up to speeds 75 mph. They went extinct in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, and Malawi, and have been reintroduced to Swaziland.
