This cheetah -- the fastest animal on Earth hitting speeds of 70 mph -- was relaxing in the shade when we caught up to it. This is the first cat we saw on the trip, which made it quite exciting. It is smaller than the lion and leopard, and the name cheetah comes from an Indian word meaning 'spotted one'.
