The lean spotty cheetah is faster than most sport cars! The secret of the cheetah's speed is in its backbone, nostrils, tail and claws. Long and flexible, this bone stretches and contracts like a spring as it sprints across the savannah. This little cub lives with his mother until he is an adult than lives in small groups with other adult male cheetas. Preying on gazelles and antelope, the mother cheetah has to make a kill every day to feed her young. Using these schleich figurines your child can role play all the amazing things that happen in the animal kingdom. Teach them the roles of animals, their special features and the importance of conservation with the schleich range.
