This is likely to be related to the different temperatures and is a feature exhibited by many species whose distribution encompasses large climatic variations.

The cheetah can reach speeds of sixty-eight miles (110 km) per hour, making it the fastest mammal in the world. It has non-retractable claws (unlike those of other cats), which provide it with better traction when it runs on soft ground. Unlike most large cats, which hunt by ambush, the cheetah chases its prey at high speed, using its tail as a stabilizer, especially when making tight turns.
