It is thought that cheetahs lose between approximately 10 to 15% of kills to the hyena.
Running at speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph) puts a great deal of strain on the cheetah's body. When sprinting, the cheetah's body temperature becomes so high that it would be deadly to continue; this is why the cheetah is often seen resting after it has caught its prey.
The cheetah has an average hunting success rate of around 50% - half of its chases result in capture.
