Females give birth to three to five cubs, after a gestation of ninety to ninety-five days. The cubs weigh from 150 to 300 g (5 to 10 oz.) at birth. They leave their mother between thirteen and twenty months after birth. The cheetah can live over twenty years. Unlike other felines, the adult females do not have true territories and seem to avoid each other. Males sometimes form small groups, especially when they came from the same litter.

Cheetahs are carnivores, eating mostly mammals under 40 kg (90 lb), including gazelles, impala, gnu calves, and hares. Prey is stalked to within ten to thirty meters (30-100 ft), then chased. The chase is usually over in less than a minute and if the cheetah fails to make a quick catch, it will often give up rather than waste energy. Roughly half of the chases are successful.
