This article is about the animal. For the pet, see Pet Cheetah.
The Cheetah is a members-only land animal that was first hinted at on September 31, 2013. It was originally released on October 10, 2013, and is currently sold at the Diamond Shop.
Cheetahs have a amber coloured body with greyish purple spiraling spots, a cream underbelly, and black eyes. Their front legs look a bit bigger in size than the back legs. The cheetah's ears are in a square shape and their face are in a rectangular type of shape.
Waves arms up and down while doing a jig, followed by a split
Sleeps on its side, with its front paws tucked in
Jumps up and down at a medium height, eyes are slightly narrowed
Crouches down and then speeds off the screen, leaving the clothes and dust behind, then returning to the same spot, slipping all clothing items back on
Animal Jam made a Jam-A-Gram with a cheetah on it that was supposed to say "Fast As A Cheetah!" However, they made a typo so it read "Fast As A Chetah!" This typo was later fixed.
Along with the Lion, Arctic Wolf and the Snow Leopard, they could be purchased with a Gift Card before the Diamond Shop was released. However, this was a temporary offer and was not tied to any specific gift card.
Cheetahs are one of the six felines on Animal Jam.
The Cheetah's cream coloring for their underbelly color is unique in shade, it cannot be changed back once the color is modified.
