FizixJunkee: What's going on this morning?  Are the mods approving and and all submissions today?

Maybe they're hoping to compensate us for all the repeating sponsored ads that don't allow comments?

Cheetah's can be domesticated. I read somewhere that they have a lousy immune system. It would be a real loss if they disappear of the earth.

There were very few cheetahs at some point, so they're all so inbred most can take organ transplants from each other without any rejection. Think of them as clones of the "Dueling Banjos" kid.

semiotix: Besides, I think cheetahs would probably rather NOT run at top speed, since every time they do that in the wild, they're gambling that they're burning up more food energy than they catch.

I remember seeing a video where the zoo was taking them out to the local dog/horse race track to give them proper runs - they had a 'rabbit' on a souped up motor line that the cheetahs would chase.  It was mentioned that cheetahs NEED to run on occasion to burn out certain enzymes for proper health.  Or something.  Basically the occasional sprint was good for them.

I can't say I'm surprised the cheetah population is declining. Everyone knows cheetahs never prosper.

I wonder if the root issue could actually be depression from locked in a small enclosure when you're an animal whose main activity is running around at high speeds.  It must suck when you plow into the glass before you can even get up to 10 mph.
