Acinonyx Summary

Monotypic genus


Acinonyx is a genus within the cat family. The only living species of this genus, the cheetah, A. jubatus, occurs and thrives in open grasslands of Africa and Asia. Though often described as a big cat, this term is used primarily to describe cats of the genus Panthera, ruling out the cheetah.
