[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Cheetahs are so beautiful and they look so tame, actually they are the tamest of the big cats, there is 2 of them at the Phoenix Zoo and they are just adorable.

It is the fastest land animal, reaching speeds between 112 kilometres per hour (70 mph) and 120 kilometres per hour (75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 460 metres (1,500 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 110 kilometres per hour (68 mph) in three seconds, greater than most supercars.

Hi Everton,

A lovely shot of this Cheetah looking right at you. I love the look on his face - you are distrubing him. After seeing these animals in Africa I really feel sad that they are in zoos.

Did you wake it up from its sleep, Everton?
Marvellous capture of this Cheetah relaxing in the zoo that looks more like the animal's actual habitat.
Sharp and clear image that shows the expression of curiosity on the face of the cat.
TFS and regards.
