The cheetah is a large cat native to Africa and central Iran.
It is the fastest land animal, estimated to be capable of running at 80 to 128 km/h with the fastest reliably recorded speeds
being 93 and 98 km/h, and as such has several adaptations for speed, including a light build, long thin legs and a long tail.

"The fastest animal over a short distance, attaining speeds of upto sixty miles an hour, more dog-like than a cat,
as it cannot retract its claws; all this is perhaps well known to many of us.
Facts are cold and clinical. To me as an artist, however, the cheetah is the most appealing of all the cats of Africa.
This is a shy and enigmatic animal, temperamental and hyper-sensitive.
Also this lovely animal has been a target for the fur trade.

For a painter, it stauesque appearance, reminding me of the Sphinx of ancient Egyptian times is irresistible.
The cheetah certainly makes a marvellous subject when seen in a typical African setting.
Here against the back-cloth of thick, thorny scrub contrasting so strongly in texture with their soft spotted fur,
they recline in a seductive pose, or sit gazing into the distance, staring out over the vast open plains." David Shepherd
