The fact that the cheetah can even catch its prey before it can't run anymore means that it is very efficient.I'm not sure what you mean by efficient.
A cheetah is the fastest land mammal, but it can run that fast for less than a minute. It's respiration and body temperature skyrocket to the point it would literally die if it continued the chase. They often have to rest before they have enough energy to eat what they've killed. It's designed for acceleration and speed, not efficient use of energy.
They're also one of the few species of cats that don't fully retract their claws. The cheetah cheats. He wears cleats. In fact, the female cheetah cheats on her cheatin', cleat-wearing spouse.
Kari's too much of an animal lover to let that fly.Sounds like a great episode of mythbusters or topgear though!
Don't be insulting dogs! :grumpy:dogs are scavengers more than hunters, and wear down prey. dogs have to be efficient at traversing long distances because they are just so bad at what they do.
Clearly proving the superior intellect of the cat. What purpose did trashing the bumper serve? None. So the cat saved its strength for more useful purposes, like leaving deep scars on your face while you sleep.That's what a back bumper looks like after being dragged around by a dog. My dumb cat just crawled on top of the bumper and fell asleep.
bumpers and http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/weblog/comments/3952/". what a brilliant species.Don't be insulting dogs! :grumpy:
I say let's tie a cat and a dog to the back bumper and see which one is so bad at what they do.

(Of course I'm not going to tie them to a back bumper that's actually mounted to a car. What did you think? That I was suggesting that we drag them around the city?)
