The wild cheetah dips its head and peers into the woodland, spying a small furry creature darting out of site. Stopping in its tracks, the cheetah swishes its long, muscular tail and considers going in for the kill.
Reaching speeds that are often unsafe for most motorway drivers, the cheetah is the world's fastest land animal. When running, cheetahs can reach an incredible 21 feet (6 - 7 meters) between strides, so they appear to be flying. Sadly, there are less than 8000 cheetahs alive today. They are officially the most endangered of the large cat family in Africa.
If you move at high speed, despite what life throws at you, then the cheetah could be your spirit animal. Celebrate this magnificent creature with cheetah canvas art, shot on a Nikon D5, by wildlife photographer, Alex Jones.
