Fastest mammal on land, the cheetah can reach speeds of 60 or perhaps even 70 miles (97 or 113 kilometers) an hour over short distances. It usually chases its prey at only about half that speed, however. The cheetah’s excellent eyesight helps it find prey during the day. Sometimes it perches on high places and watches for prey. http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/animals/creaturefeature/cheetah/
Did you know? Polar bears are the world’s largest land predators. Polar bears live along shores and on sea ice in the icy cold Arctic. When sea ice forms over the ocean in cold weather, many polar bears, except pregnant females, head out onto the ice to hunt seals. Polar bears have been spotted on sea ice hundreds of miles from shore. When the warm weather causes the sea ice to melt, polar bears move back toward shore.
