Cheetahs are a type of wild cat that lives in Africa. They are the fastest land animals in the world!

Cheetahs can run up to 65 miles an hour for a few seconds when they hunting prey. That's as fast as a car on the highway! Cheetahs are golden brown with dark spots and have very long legs and a long tail to help them help their balance. Gazelles, rabbits, and other small animals are a cheetah's favorite food since they are meat eaters. Most cheetahs like to hunt alone because they are shy and not very friendly with other cats.

There are two different types of elephants: the African elephant and the Asian elephant. The African elephant is the world's biggest land animal. They are up to 10 feet tall and weigh as much as 5400 kg! Asian elephants are also large, but they are just a bit smaller than an African elephant. Elephants are unique because they have a very long truck with two nostrils at the end. They use their trunks to suck up water and spick up food it put it in their mouth. Elephants are very social animals. They live in family groups just like people.

Giraffes are the tallest land animal in the world. If you asked three people to stand on each other shoulders to form a human tower, they would still be shorter than a giraffe! Giraffes are so tall because they have a very long neck. Their long neck is helpful because giraffes are plant eaters and they like to eat the best plants at the very top of acacia trees. Giraffes have cream colored hair with brown markings and two short horns on their heads. They can go several days with drinking water.
