Facts about Cheetahs.

Name: Cheetah
What is a Cheetah?
  • A Cheetah is a wild animal that is part of the cat family.

  • A Cheetah is very fast and kills other animals to feed their cubs.  

  • The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large feline (family Felidae, subfamily Felinae) inhabiting most of Africa and parts of the Middle East.

  • It is the only extant member of the genus Acinonyx.

  • The cheetah can run faster than any other land animal— as fast as 112 to 120 km/h (70 to 75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 500 m (1,600 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to over 100 km/h (62 mph) in five seconds.

  • This cat is also notable for modifications in the species' paws.

  • It is one of the few felids with semi-retractable claws.

  • Cheetahs are also at risk of becoming extinct.

  • If Cheetah’s become extinct, this means that there will be no more Cheetahs left.

  • Zookeepers try to find some cheetahs so that when all the others become extinct, other Cheetahs will be able to still be alive and safe, but away from the wild might want them to go back to the wild, to the other Cheetahs but there might not be any left.

In the Weekends

On Saturday, 11 May 2013, My sister and I woke up and got changed, and then we went to say good morning to my mother.  After that, we had breakfast and then we went to music school. My sister and I play the violin.

Then, we went back home to put our instruments away. After a while, we went out again, but this time it was to church. I was wearing a dress, and we drove to church in a car. When we got there, we went to say hello to everyone.  

After that, we walked to our baby cousin, Rylie.  Then we said bye to him, but he didn't want us to leave, so he started following us back to our seats and then he started jumping up and down and he was giggling as well. Next we started pulling funny faces. Then we went to the foyer of the entrances and then I started chasing him and then his father Chris, and his uncle, Frank came.   Chris had dark black eyes and he had a short haircut and Frank had brown eyes and his hair was also short (they’re brothers) then Rylie ran to him and then we all went back to our seats.

A few minutes after that, the mothers day service finished, the church was decorated with flowers and candles and so we went to the back and we had lunch.  Most of the conversation was to the mothers, After we had finished eating, cake ,marshmallows and Ice cream, I took my cousin out to play for a little while.  After a while, we all left.

I enjoyed my day because I had fun and I got to celebrate mothers day with everyone.

My holiday recount

My Holiday Recount:

In the holidays, my sister and I went to my grandparent's house. At my grandparent’s house, my sister and I went to the library with my younger cousin. I also made pancakes with my sister and when I went back to my Mum and Dad’s house, we made pancakes again.
The pancakes were nice and sweet. Then we turned the T.V on and we watched the game, (the warriors were playing).  Then the warriors won and we were happy and we celebrated.
I had fun and I enjoyed my holiday,but I also wanted to go back to school.
