Greater ancestor or giant cheetah (back) and the lesser descendant modern cheetah (front)
The Giant Cheetah (Acinonyx pardinensis), was descended from our modern day Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus), and probably looked very similar, but it was much bigger.
At around 120-150 kgs (265-331lbs), it was as large as an African lioness, and was able to take on larger prey than its delicate modern day counterpart.
The Giant Cheetah was also adapted to fast running, . . .
“Some, have suggested that the Giant Cheetah, having longer legs and bigger heart and lungs, was probably able to run as fast, or even faster, than the cheetah does today – that’s over 115 kph (72mph)!
The Giant Cheetah lived in Europe and Asia (from Germany and France to India and China) . . . .
Due to its living in colder environments than modern day Cheetahs, it is possible that the Giant Cheetah had longer fur and perhaps a lighter coloration.”
Bigger better faster stronger and smarter is the recipe for greater-ancestry. People have not made the comparisons or have been made aware of this model. Although independent researchers write about instances of greater-ancestry, this as an all-encompassing theory can only be verified here on this website.
