Which big cat out in the wild is unable to roar but purrs like a house cat or sounds almost like a bird at times? Find out on today’s Creation Moments Minute.
Of 41 species of cats around the world, the cheetah is one of the most unusual. Unlike other great cats, the cheetah cannot roar, but it can purr like a house cat or emit high-pitched chirps. Beautiful in form and built for speed, the cheetah is the world’s fastest land animal, reaching a speed of 40 miles per hour from a standstill within two seconds, and can momentarily reach speeds of 70 miles per hour. The cheetah’s claws are more like a dog’s than a cat’s because it is unable to retract them.
As we’ll see next time, the Lord has given the cheetah a high-performance body that makes it both fast and deadly.
