Where do Cheetahs live?
I know they must live in Africa, but which parts of Africa? and where do they actually live, like do they sleep in trees or do they live in caves? I really like cheetahs, I wish I could have one.

Cheetahs are cool. I had forgotten that they are the fastest land mammal.

It's sad because apparently only 100 years ago cheetahs could be found living in at least 44 different countries within Africa & Asia and their population was far greater (more than100,000 cheetahs world wide). Now only less than10% of that number remain - that's only 10,000 cheetahs world wide, and the numbers are decreasing.
quote:
Cheetahs have disappeared from huge areas of their historic range. They still occur widely, but sparsely, in Africa, but Ray et al. (2005) estimate that the cheetahs have disappeared from 76% of their historic range on the continent.
...
Southern and Eastern Africa are the species strongholds, although there has been significant range loss in parts of these regions.
