“Cheetahs are the best / They never get dressed / Cheetahs are endangered / They are not strangers”

Cheetahs are so cool. Most cheetahs live in Africa. Some live in parks, but they don’t harm people. Cheetahs run about 68-75 miles per hour. Cheetahs commonly eat gazelles, antelopes, wildebeests, guineafowl, gray duikers, impalas, kudus, springboks, ostriches, jackals, hares, and even birds. They are the fastest on ground, but nothing compared to the peregrine falcon, which goes 242 miles per hour. Cheetahs are as yellow as the sun.

But jaguars and leopards are a shame to the human and animal race! They look just like cheetahs, although they can’t do anything. Sure, leopards and jaguars are endangered, but there are only 7,100 cheetahs in the wild now. Jaguars and leopards run so slow COMPARED to cheetahs. Tigers are the next best thing after cheetahs. They eat leopards, and they don’t eat cheetahs. The bad part is that they don’t eat jaguars.

But wait, why are cheetahs dying? Bad humans do illegal hunting to take the fur to make coats, or destroy habitats.

I have an idea that I learned from National Geographic: that I can raise money to help conservations such as the Cheetah Conservation Fund, also known as CCF. We have to spread the word about the amazingness of cheetahs, so everyone can give money, and cheetahs will live in better conditions. National Geographic says you should visit Africa, if you can, and donate money to help protect cheetah habitats.


Song for cheetahs. Also known as (SFC)


Cheetahs are the best

They never get dressed

Cheetahs are endangered

They are not strangers

We should save a cheetah

I’m not sure they’ve eaten margherita

Some don’t care

I wish it was fair

Cheetahs are fast

They weren’t endangered in the past

Maybe if we change this

Some might be named Chris                                                                                  

Cheetahs eat birds

They make up their own words          

Save the cheetahs                           

So they have their own arenas
