ABSTRACT
Cheetah, or Hunting Leopard, an animal of the cat family. Once abundant from Israel eastwards through northern India, the cheetah is now found in the wild only in isolated areas of the Middle East and adjacent regions to the north and south. The cheetah is an endangered species whose numbers have been greatly reduced by overhunting and destruction of its natural habitat.
