    I think cheetahs have very little stamina.... But CJ2K better be faster than Hester in case the cheetah is hungry

    Relative to other wild animals yes. They can sprint farther than humans though.

    I bet I could take a cheetah if I had to, they dont like confrontation so one good kick to the ribs should do it.

    I worked at a safari zoo for a bit and they were part of come cheetah breeding program. Owner's wife ran it. She let me get close and play with them a little a couple times. There is not much to a cheetah. Kinda like a greyhound. All skin and bones. They are not terribly dangerous.

    It's amazing how the spots are raised on their fur though. Kinda like bumps.

    It is. And cool how they feel. Also love the claws on them. Only cats that have claws that do not retract.

    I got to pet one in Cape Town at a Cheetah Sanctuary. They seem to be just really big cats, much different to a Lion or Leopard.

    Yeah, they are different. The person who headed the breeding program told me they are a much older species of cat than lions, tigers, etc. Also got to hold a tiger cub in Malaysia. That was cool. It was half asleep and I could feel it breathing.

    I held a tiger cub in Thailand, didn't want to know me. Wanted it's bottle.

    Got to pet Lion cubs as well. That was interesting...especially when s/he started licking my hand.
