swenson - Acinonyx jubatus 2016

Mal was schnelles
Der Gepard [ˈɡeːpart/ɡeˈpart] (Acinonyx jubatus) ist eine hauptsächlich in Afrika verbreitete Katze. Die in ihrem Jagdverhalten hoch spezialisierten Geparde gelten als schnellste Landtiere der Welt. Gestalt und Körperbau der Art unterscheiden sich deutlich von anderen Katzen, außerdem weist das Jagdverhalten zahlreiche eher für Caniden typische Merkmale auf. Daher wird der Art traditionell eine Sonderstellung unter den Katzen eingeräumt. Genetische Untersuchungen zeigten jedoch, dass diese entwicklungsgeschichtlich nicht gerechtfertigt ist; die nächsten Verwandten des Gepards sind amerikanische Katzen (Pumas).

Der Gattungsname Acinonyx ist aus den griechischen Wörtern ἀκίνητος akínetos „unbeweglich“ und ὄνυξ ónyx „Kralle“ zusammengesetzt.
