The Southern African cheetah was first described by German naturalist Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber in his book Die Säugethiere in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen (The Mammals illustrated as in Nature with Descriptions), published in 1775. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. Isolated populations are found in northwestern Zimbabwe, such as Victoria Falls, Matetsi, and Kazuma Pan, also near the Mozambican border. A captive propagation project has been proposed. These cheetahs are found at Mpanga-Kipengere Game Reserve and the Uwanda Game Reserve. Three cheetah subspecies are included on the IUCN list of vulnerable species (three African subspecies threatened, Northwest African and Asiatic subspecies in critical condition), as well as on the US Endangered Species Act: threatened species - Appendix I of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). Acinonyx jubatus fearsoni), also commonly known as East African cheetah or Kenyan cheetah, is a subspecies of cheetah native to East Africa. Their fur are usually quite shorter and leaner, however some can have a thick coarse fur on the belly. It is suspected that the Masai lions are the sources of high mortality of cheetah cubs. They probably extended to Kinshasa. Male cheetahs are sociable and may live in a group with other males. The cheetah has a bright yellow or sometimes a golden coat, and its fur is slightly thicker than that of other subspecies. The indigenous population of cheetahs was extinct in Swaziland. Type locality “Loita Plains, British East Africa.” Acinonyx jubatus raineyi Heller, 1913:9. Before then, the decline of suitable prey caused the cheetahs to feed on livestock. The tear marks are notably thicker at the corners of the mouth, and almost all of them have distinct brown mustache markings. Back in 1973, an estimated 400 cheetahs lived in Zimbabwe and had increased to 470 in 1987. The females, though, are not sociable and do not establish a territory. Between the late 18th century and the early 20th century, the following Acinonyx species and subspecies were described:. [22][23] They are mostly found in arid habitats of the Central Kalahari, Mokolodi Nature Reserve, and Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (known as Gemsbok National Park in Botswana) in the south, and in the southwest and also in the northern region of the country that holds the largest prey base, such as in Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, and Moremi Game Reserve. The size of the territory also depends on the available resources; depending on the habitat, the size of a male's territory can vary greatly from 37 to 160 km2 (14 to 62 sq mi). We have to get them from abroad to repopulate the species." Acinonyx jubatus in Mammal Species of the World. Though their subpopulations are fragmented in the regions. Acinonyx jubatus jubatus, Acinonyx jubatus soemmeringii i Acinonyx jubatus velox. Males establish their territories by marking their territories by urinating on trees or termite mounds. Meanwhile, two subspecies of East African cheetahs have been proposed. [18] The king cheetah is a rare variant of the Southern cheetah, first discovered in southern Rhodesia in 1925. It is estimated that only 20 individuals live in Kidepo since 2014. With three mature individuals and three cubs, six cheetahs are in Laohu Valley Reserve. Certain populations of cheetahs in southern Tanzania are unlikely to be the Eastern subspecies, as the southernmost populations found at the southern region of the country are actually South African cheetahs. Wilson, Don E., and DeeAnn M. Reeder, eds. It was previously estimated that about 100 to 500 cheetahs lived in the Congo between 1950-70s. However, coalitions of male adult cheetahs can chase predators away, and a single cheetah can chase jackals and a lone wild dog away.[41]. The Southern cheetah is the most widespread subspecies breeding in captivity around the world, while Sudanese cheetahs are found only in a few European and Middle Eastern zoos and wildlife centers. [58], In 2016, a reintroduction and rewilding project known as Rewilding iSimangaliso for cheetahs is going on in iSimangaliso situated in KwaZulu-Natal province, including lions and Cape wild dogs, which were first introduced in late 2013. In 1877, Sclater, of the Zoological Society of London, wrote of a recent acquisition by the zoo. velox as having "longer hair than jubatus, especially on nape and belly..." and A.j. The spots merge toward the end of the tail to form four to fourteen dark rings followed by a white tuft at the tip of the tail. Acinonyx jubatus) je mačka koja je najčešća još uglavnom u Africi. Cheetahs are rarely found in the eastern Botswana and at the Zimbabwean border. soemmeringii. Regional assessment of the status, distribution and conservation needs of cheetahs in southern Africa. After the cubs reach 18 months of age, the mother leaves her cubs, and the siblings remain as a group for a few months until the sisters leave the group and the brothers stay together. [65], Multiple suitable potential sites from the Indian states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan which consisted of forests, grasslands, savannahs, and deserts were chosen for the cheetah reintroduction project in India, such as Banni Grasslands Reserve, Desert National Park, Palpur-Kuno Wildlife Sanctuary and Gajner Wildlife Sanctuary. Acinonyx was proposed by Joshua Brookes in 1828.. About 50 cheetah were previously hunted down by tribesmen each year to protect livestock. Osobine. velox. the scientific name for a cheetah: Please provide more details. They are also regionally extinct from Rwanda and Burundi. [52] Sibella's youngest daughter Chilli has given birth to the first third-generation cheetah cubs of the Samara Private Game Reserve in January 2017.[53].

Even a single cheetah are also known to chase jackals and African golden wolves away from their territory or their food. In Botswana, the cheetah is protected under the Conserved Animal legislation since 1968, which strictly limits hunting and capture. In desert areas, such as the Kalahari, cheetahs are somewhat smaller and lighter in weight, with thinner, bright-colored fur, a trait the Northwest African cheetah also has. Acinonyx jubatus in Mammal Species of the World. As a protected species in Namibia, people are allowed to remove Namibian cheetahs only if they pose a threat to livestock or human life. Not much was known about the Tanzanian cheetah's evolutionary story, although at first, the Eastern and Southern African cheetahs were thought to be identical as the genetic distance between the two subspecies are low. Acinonyx jubatus - Taxon details on Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS). About 100 cheetahs live in the country. [16] In 2011, results of a phylogeographic study revealed that the Asiatic cheetah and cheetah populations in Africa are genetically distinct and separated between 32,000 and 67,000 years ago. Two naturalists, Divya Bhanusinh and MK Ranjit Singh, suggested importing cheetahs from Namibia, after which they will be bred in captivity and, in time, released in the wild. A few can also be found at lakeshores and coastal areas, including mountain ranges. IUCN: Acinonyx jubatus (Schreber, 1775) (Vulnerable) In Kenya, Tanzanian cheetahs of the Masai Mara hunt after sunset to escape the high temperatures of the day. Wilson, Don E., and DeeAnn M. Reeder, eds. However, the cheetah may also have only a black tip at the end of its tail. (2005) Mammal Species of the World: A Taxonomic and Geographic Reference, 3rd ed., vols. Most of the Zimbabwean cheetahs live in protected areas today. Wilson, Don E., and DeeAnn M. Reeder, eds. The population of cheetahs has been dramatically decreased in Zimbabwe, from about a thousand to 400, as of 2007. In 2007, around 100 individuals remained in Zambia and between 50 and 90 were left in Mozambique.[2]. Its range is now greatly reduced, where it occurs in an area of 1,223,388 km2 (472,353 sq mi), 22% of its original range.

Male cheetahs are sociable and often live in a group of other males calledcoalitions. These creatures may be the same species as the present-day cheetah, but with a genetic disposition to long fur. [28][29] Following years later, about 150 to 170 adult cheetahs are found there, and the human-cheetah conflict is no longer a major threat to the species. They live in grasslands and savannas of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Somalia. Similarly, Roger Hunt successfully tames an East African cheetah from the Tsavo East National Park in Willard Price's Safari Adventure, after rescuing it from an elephant pit trap. However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes. The organization works with all stakeholders within the cheetah's ecosystem to develop best practices in research, education, and ecology, and create a sustainable model from which all other species, including people, will benefit.

These cheetahs are listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN, as it is threatened by habitat loss, predation and cheetah cub mortality rated up to 90% in the Serengeti ecosystem. [3] It is therefore the nominate subspecies. It also disappeared from many regions of South Africa, only living in the northern and northeastern parts of the country. Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary was chosen as the most suitable site for reintroduced Namibian cheetahs. The males are usually larger than females. In 2007, the total number of cheetahs in East Africa were estimated at 1,960 to 2,572 adults and independent adolescents. See Top 10 Fastest Land Animals. [47], In May 2017, two male and two female cheetahs were imported from South Africa and reintroduced to Liwonde National Park.

In 1999, a minimum total population of 1,520 was estimated, in which over 1,200 of these cheetahs lived on commercial farmlands, while 320 were found in national parks. The subspecies might even shared borders with the Sudan cheetah on northeastern regions and the South African cheetah on southeastern regions of the Congo. Adult cheetahs are 70 to 90 cm (28 to 35 in) tall at the shoulder. A. j. raineyi (Heller, 1913) Placed in Acinonyx by Pocock (1917b), Weigel (1961), Hemmer (1978), Král and Zima (1980), Kratochvíl (1982c), and Groves (1982a). (2005) Mammal Species of the World: A Taxonomic and Geographic Reference, 3rd ed., vols. Acinonyx jubatus Schreber, 1775. Breeding programs have been successful, including the use of in vitro fertilization, in zoos around the world. "[5], Following Schreber's description, other naturalists and zoologists also described cheetah specimens from many parts of Southern and East Africa that today are all considered synonyms of A. j. jubatus:[4], In 2005, the authors of Mammal Species of the World grouped A. j. guttata, A. j. lanea, A. j. obergi, and A. j. rex under A j. jubatus, whilst recognizing A. j. raineyi and A. j. velox as valid taxa and considering P. l. ngorongorensis as synonymous with raineyi. They are solitary and avoid each other. An Acinonyx jubatus in nahilalakip ha genus nga Acinonyx, ngan familia nga felidae. In October 1994, reintroduction attempts were made with three cheetahs to the Lower Zambezi. [63], Asiatic cheetahs have existed in India for thousands of years, but as a result of hunting and other disastrous causes, they have disappeared there, with the last known Indian cheetah having been spotted in 1951. Debated Taxonomy. Acinonyx jubatus soemmeringii Acinonyx jubatus velox. Tanzanian cheetahs can measure up to between 200 and 220 cm in length and weighs between 40 and 60 kg.

A study in Nairobi National Park showed that the success of Tanzanian cheetah hunt depends on the species, age, sex, and habitat of the prey, and the size of the hunting herd or the efficiency of the hunting individual. Kruger and Kalahari Gemsbok National Parks hold the largest populations; they are home to roughly 42% of South Africa's cheetahs. Gepard (lat. [30] Cheetahs are mainly found in the southern to central regions. The cheetahs previously lived in Virunga National Park. The East African cheetah is also known to have the highest mortality rate of the cheetah cubs. Historically, Speke's gazelles fell prey to the cheetahs, which were formerly the main prey of the Tanzanian cheetahs in semi-deserts and grass steppes of the Horn of Africa.

Heller also proposed the scientific name Acinonyx jubatus velox for a cheetah shot by Kermit Roosevelt in June 1909 in the ... "Acinonyx jubatus". It was found to be a mutation caused by a recessive gene. A ticked (spotless) cheetah was shot in Tanzania in 1921, it had only a few very small spots on the neck and back. [12], Until September 2009, the Asiatic cheetah was thought to be identical to African cheetahs. ISBN 0-8018-8221-4. Like all subspecies, the Tanzanian cheetah population is threatened by poaching, habitat loss, fragmentation, predator relationships with lions, leopards, hyenas and painted dogs. A. j. velox (Heller, 1913) (2007). The species lives mostly on the eastern and northern locations of South Africa. [66][67], However, the plan to introduce this subspecies to India has been suspended in 2012, after discovering the distinctness between the cheetahs from Asia and Africa, having been separated between 32,000 and 67,000 years ago. In 2007, the small cheetah population was considered locally extinct due to loss of suitable habitat and lack of prey. In early 1930s, the cheetahs were hunted down and almost went extinct in South Africa. The divergence between the cheetah populations in Southern, East and Northern Africa occurred between 6,700 and 32,400 years ago. Acinonyx jubatus velox Heller, 1913; References . Hunting is the major activity throughout the day; peaks are observed during dawn and dusk indicating crepuscular tendencies. Measurements on wild cheetahs in Tanzania were taken. For instance, the cheetahs have been reintroduced in around 50 of these South African reserves. Thanks. In 1993, it was placed in a monophyletic subfamily, Acinonychinae, and is considered a close sister group of the genus Puma. Since 1990, the population was estimated to be about 2,500 individuals in Namibia; until 2015, the cheetah population has increased to more than 3,500 in the country. East Africa- A.j. In the past, less than 10,000 cheetahs were hunted in Namibian farmlands. Wilson, Don E. & Reeder, DeeAnn M. (Editors) 2005. ISBN 0-8018-8221-4. [61][62], Since 1989, only a few cheetahs had been recorded at the Lower Zambezi National Park, despite the area being apparently suitable habitat for cheetahs. [54] Its purpose is to develop and co-ordinate a national metapopulation management plan for cheetahs in smaller fenced reserves in South Africa. The Tanzanian cheetah's tear marks run from the corner of the eyes to the mouth which reduces the glare of sunlight in its eyes, which is relatively thick. The cheetahs are rather uncommon in Etosha National Park and in Palmwag. [15], The woolly cheetah was discovered in the late 19th century by English zoologist Philip Sclater. Several specimens were obtained. Cheetah cub births mostly occurs during January to August in East Africa after 90 to 95 days of gestation.
