    How about increasing the power and defense of cheetahs? It would make them more powerful without reducing their top speed

    while cheetahs have a low weight class for many powerful cats, the problem is the power or lack of it. the perfect idea of the cat build is to optimize stealth and power. i believe damage might be more effective if they made use of retractable claws and bigger jaws.

    I remember one time me and some friends were playing a little game where u play as African animals, one of us was a cheetah, and I was a leopard. My cheetah friend killed something and I just immediately took the body. Another time I was a cheetah and a friend was a hyena hunting me and they just out stammered me, both times we basically just went “heh, guess that is how it would go irl huh?”

    I hope this doesn't sound too sentimental or corny, but the time I found your videos coincided with a rough period of my life. Binging your content helped me a lot, and it got me really interested in zoology (so much so that I now do an "Animal of the Day" system wherein I research one animal each day). Thank you very much for making entertaining content.

    The reason why the cheetahs build is f tier is because it goes against its own trade. Having unshaped claws and low body mass directly lowers the power of its leap ability. But the fact that he its manage to find a spot in the mata just show how important the speed state is. And i was wondering if we had a speed max canine build would it be broken. Because unlike cats canine rely more on it bite to do damge. And speed can even give them an edge in combat because of their bite and run strategie.

    Hello! I am currently involved in a debate in regards to the population size of the cheetahs. My friend is suggesting, strongly, that the population was diminished to only two individuals roughly 10.000 years ago. For this the paper by Michele Merola from 1994 called "A Reassessment of Homozygosity and the Case for Inbreeding Depression in the Cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus: Implications for Conservation". She also uses a quote "an extreme bottleneck, in which the population is reduced to only two individuals". I can't find any supporting evidence for this quote nor for any definitions of bottlenecks, official or unofficial. Unfortunately I lack the capability to read the submitted article in full, I've requested her to send me the PDF as she has access to it through her university. However; I can only find evidence for the species to have been reduced to two very small subspecies and also two populations. The homozygosity of the cheetah is also very high, around 95%, but I can't find any sources claiming this would be a reason to deduce that it was two individuals. The Cheetah Is Depauperate in Genetic Variation. STEPHEN J. O'BRIEN1, DAVID E. WILDT1, DAVID GOLDMAN2, CARL R. MERRIL3, MITCHELL BUSH4. 1983. East African cheetahs: evidence for two population bottlenecks? S J O'Brien, D E Wildt, M Bush, T M Caro, C FitzGibbon, I Aggundey, and R E Leakey. 1987. Dating the genetic bottleneck of the African cheetah. M Menotti-Raymond and S J O'Brien. 1993. So do you, with your years of experience, have any insight into this or any tips for how to go about finding out the truth about the claim? She seems very adamant that she is right, seems fishy that I can't find her quote of extreme bottlenecks though. She might just not want to be wrong. I might just want to be right, but I doubt it... Best regards
