Yesterday, Iran lost an Asiatic #cheetah pregnant with 3 in a tragic car collision.
Fewer than 30 cheetahs exist
Outrageous reactions filled media why gov did not take mitigations to stop cheetah road collisions
Totally right, but let's see what is the problem? /1
2/It is not a normal road, but a major highway. It was not built recently, but was part of silk road for ages. Sadly, it is part of #BeltandRoad with serious expansion plans. So, the future is not good for cheetahs
Check this out:…
3/The road passes between three main #cheetah reserves
There are evidence that Asiatic cheetahs regularly move between these reserves, sometimes up-to 400 km, making them wide ranging animals

"చీతా" (చిరుత) అనే పదాన్ని హిందీలో चीता cītā పదం మీదగా, citrakāyaḥ అనే సంస్కృత పదం నుంచి సేకరించారు, దీనికి "రంగురంగుల శరీరం" అనే అర్థం వస్తుంది.
ఏసినోనైక్స్ అనే ప్రజాతి పేరుకు గ్రీకు భాషలో "వెనక్కుతీసుకోలేని పంజా" అనే అర్థం ఉంది, #InternationalCheetahDay
#Cheetah #Chita
జాతి పేరు జుబాటస్‌కు లాటిన్‌లో "జూలు కలిగిన" అనే అర్థం వస్తుంది, చీతా పిల్లలకు కనిపించే జూలుకు ఇది ఒక సూచన. #InternationalCheetahDay 🐆🐅

చీతా ను (ఏసినోనైక్స్ జుబాటస్ ) పిల్లి కుటుంబంలో (ఫెలిడే) ఒక విలక్షణమైన వర్గంగా పరిగణిస్తారు, వేగంతో తనకంటూ ఒక ప్రత్యేకత కలిగివున్న ఈ జాతికి,
చెట్లు ఎక్కే సామర్థ్యం ఉండదు. ఏసినోనైక్స్ ప్రజాతిలో ఇప్పటికీ ఉనికిపట్టు కలిగివున్న జీవజాతి ఇదొక్కటే కావడం గమనార్హం. భూమిపై అత్యంత వేగంగా పరిగెత్తే జంతువుగా చీతా గుర్తింపు పొందింది, దీని యొక్క గరిష్ఠ వేగాలు 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph) మధ్య ఉంటాయి, అయితే

When #Cheetah are coming back to #India. A look at how the last of the lots were hunted, maimed and domesticated for hunting parties. Video made in 1939. 1/n
Historical record suggests cheetah were in least conflict with humans. Rather they were domesticated and used by hunting parties widely. Even some used to call them ‘hunting leopards’. 2/n
Not only cheetah but most of the charismatic animals were hunted in those days by kings and britishers. Until the Wildlife Protection Act 1972 was passed it was very late. Cheetah were already extinct from India. Footage is archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd. 3/3

Cheetahs (3♂️, 5♀️) are coming to India (Kuno Palpur National Park, MP) from Namibia within a few days.

They will be released into quarantine Enclosure by the Hon'ble PM @NarendraModi on 17th September.

It's a thread on some interesting facts about #Cheetah.

Cheetah is the world's fastest land animal. It shows astonishing speed & acceleration ... 0 to 100km/hr in 3 seconds.

Biological Adaptations behind such speed:
* Flexible spine, which enables elongated strides (upto 20ft)
* Light weight (avg adult males weigh 40-60kg)
* Aerodynamic body (small head, slender legs): minimises air resistance
* Enlarged nostrils, heart & lungs: supply large amount of oxygenated blood
* Semi-retractable claws: Unlike other Big Cats, Cheetah claws don't retract fully, giving them better grip & traction while running

1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)
2El padre de la criatura era el ingeniero William Edward Willoughby "Teddy" Petter, quien había trabajado previamente en numerosas aeronaves de la firma Westland, como el #Lysander, el #Whirlwind o el #Welkin Image
3incluso trabajó en el proyecto para mejorar el #Spitfire corrigiendo cierta inestabilidad del diseño original

Tras ciertas desavenencias con la dirección de @westland, en septiembre de 1944, Peter se despidió y se llevó consigo los trabajos para la propuesta B1/44 Image

First photos of graduates from "Military Academy of #Kabul".
In #Afghanistan after pol leaders fled & soldiers surrendered, #Taliban have talked about an inclusive national #army curently being reorganised. But what hardware/capabilities will they have

They have
-Millions of rounds of ammo
-10s of thousands of guns, radios other hardware
-1000s of MRAPs & Humvees
-Dozens of aircraft
-100s of technicians/operators

@AJEnglish had exclusive access to what #Taliban says is the beginning of its own #AirForce
Military analysts say much of the estimated $88 BILLION firepower built by US in its 20-yr #Afghan war is either obsolete/inoperable. The coalition destroyed large amounts of hardware on its way out.

Now some being rebuilt from scrap and spares.
Such as #Mi24 #Mi35 attack helis ImageImage

There are many criticisms of the #Cheetah introduction plan. No real conservation value tops the list + others like viability & cost. Disease risk is one that hasn't been discussed as much

My report…
Acc. to @IUCN reintroduction guidelines, “no translocated organisms can be entirely free of infection with micro-organisms or parasites, with consequent risk of their spread.”
So disease risk assessments are a top priority to ensure that the 20 cheetahs are & remain healthy & to minimise risk of introducing a new pathogen into Kuno

Sound #science underpins effective conservation action, and so developing #conservationmanagement tools requires a deep understanding of #animalecology. #Scienceweek. PC: Bobby-Jo Vial Image
Where #wildlifemanagement tools rely on natural signals to modify behaviour, they must be underpinned by an understanding of #animalcommunication & cognition. Taronga's @HWConflict collaborates on several projects with @BPCTcamp unravelling African large #carnivore communication
For example, #leopard #scentmarking behaviour (…); spotted #hyena latrine-use (…); #cheetah marking trees (…); and scent marking behaviour of #AfricanWildDogs (…). PC: Bobby-Jo Vial Image

Sat down tonight to see if the harsh criticism of #WW84 is deserved. If anything, its detractors are too kind. I loved the original #WonderWoman, love #GalGadot, felt the love story angle, appreciated the direction of #PattyJenkins. But my Lord, this sequel is garbage. Thread:
First and foremost, the concept and writing are a disaster. A talented cast is brought to its knees by the plodding, contrived dialogue and juvenile plot. The blame here lies with director Jenkins, who wrote this monstrosity, and may have killed the film franchise. #WW84
#GalGadot remains a compelling star, but she and poor #ChrisPine have to wade through a hideous script that allows them none of the chemistry that drove the original. The wonderful #PedroPascal of #Mandalorian fame is reduced to comic villainous excess. #WW84
