    It’s a well-known fact that cheetahs are the world's fastest land animals, but not many people know they can’t roar like some other big cats. In this video, they sound just like domesticated felines. Check it out!

    Cheetahs don't roar….because they can't! In fact, only lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars can produce this sound due to a special two-piece hyoid bone in the throat. All of the non-roaring cats like cheetahs have a one-piece hyoid bone. Besides meowing like kitties, they also can purr, bleat, bark, growl, hiss and chirp like our more domesticated little friends.
