Artist's Description

The Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)

W&N watercolour, using only Sepia, on Bockingford 300gsm
.
The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is a large-sized feline (family Felidae) inhabiting most of Africa and parts of the Middle East. The cheetah is the only extant member of the genus Acinonyx, most notable for modifications in the species’ paws. As such, it is the only felid with non-retractable claws and pads that, by their scope, disallow gripping (therefore cheetah cannot climb vertical trees, although they are generally capable of reaching easily accessible branches).
.
The Cheetah’s Conservations status is THREATENED VU (Vulnerable)
