The Cheetah is a members-only land animal.

Default Appearance[]

Cheetahs have an amber colored body with grayish purple spiraling spots, a cream underbelly, and black eyes. Their front legs look a bit bigger in size than the back legs. The cheetah's ears are in a square shape and the face is in a rectangular type of shape.


Acts Description
Similar to the way all animals sit.
Waves arms up and down while doing a jig, followed by a split.
Sleeps on its side, with its front paws tucked in.
Jumps up and down at a medium height, eyes are slightly narrowed.
Crouches down and then speeds off the screen, leaving the clothes and dust behind, then returning to the same spot, slipping all clothing items back on.


The Cheetah was initially released on October 10, 2013, in the Diamond Shop. It was most recently released on August 3, 2023, in the Ancient Observatory Bundle and left on August 31, 2023.
