Generically known as genus Miracinonyx, the American cheetah is identified by its slender, muscular frame and swift movements. Before the last Ice age approximately ten thousand years ago, the American Cheetah went into extinction- most likely due to humans killing them off to use their skin as fur. The American Cheetah actually shares a closer relation to other big cats like the jaguar, rather than the cheetahs we know today.
