Guides News – July 2017

I want to begin by putting my focus is on Cheetah and one particular myth that has bothered me for some time which is that cheetah will abandon a hunt midway through to avoid overheating and collapsing. I went on to do a research about the myth, and discovered some information

The body temperatures in the cheetah during the actual chasing of their prey, whether the hunt was successful or not, would stay relatively constant, it is only after the cheetah had stopped running that their body temperature would rise, but the interesting part is that their body temperature would rise considerably more after a successful hunt than an unsuccessful hunt.
