Cheetah Run in San Diego Zoo Safari Park

To exercise their cheetahs and to show their visitors the enormous speed explosion of these big cats, they developed the Cheetah Run in San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Daily at 15.30 hrs (weather permitting) a cheetah will dash on a 100-meter-long track that allows it to really stretch its legs and reach an incredible speed. The cheetah chases a mechanical lure attached to its favourite toy, in this case a toy zebra. It goes from 0 to about 110 kilometer

Goal: 7000 tigers in the wild
