Cheetah

Cheetah at Whipsnade Zoo

The St. Louis Zoo is home to some amazing animals, including cheetahs. Even if you can’t make it out to the zoo to visit them, you can still learn all about these amazing animals on their website. For instance, have you ever noticed the long black “teardrops” under cheetahs’ eyes? On their site, you can learn about how these stripes may help cheetahs see their prey better by reducing glare, like the eye black that baseball players wear. Is there anything else you’ve ever wondered about these animals? There’s a good chance that you can find the answers with a little help from the St. Louis Zoo!
