The Cheetah is an endangered species due to habitate loss and hunting. Their diet is primarily the Thomson's gazelle and small antelope, but it also includes warthogs, hares, young zebras, wildebeest, and small birds. The Cheetah lives in Africa, south of the Sahara in the mountian woodland and savanna.
