ITV, A&E Alum Patrice Andrews Named G.M. Of Animal Planet (Exclusive)

Animal PlanetAs one of many many animals at the moment classed as endangered (dwelling predominantly in Africa) the Cheetah is understood to be the fastest land animal presently residing on our planet. With speeds of as much as one hundred twenty km/h (75 mph) and a 0- 100km/h acceleration usually of around 5- 10 seconds there may be actually some validity to the claims stating it to be the fastest land animal on the planet. If we consider it purely in acceleration terms, the Cheetah might be stated to have a sooner acceleration than some vehicles. However, due to the amount of power that it takes to succeed in speeds this fast, the Cheetah can only preserve a sprint for a maximum of around 500 metres. This works to the advantage of the much slower prey of the Cheetah for it will tire out very quickly when hunting.

Love the name. …
