Notes RQ6 pg 390. Of slighter build than other big cats, the cheetah is built for speed, not power. Unlike other panthers, they hunt during the day, chase antelopes and other prey after the initial ambush and finish them off with a suffocating bite to the throat. Although they normally hunt alone, small groups are sometimes encountered, but do not hunt or fight cooperatively. They can, with some difficulty, be trained, and have been used as hunting animals by some Fonritian nobles. Cheetah was made by Rasout to be fast, so that no prey could outrun her. But she did not have the strength to take the largest prey.
