  • 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.
