Are there white cheetahs? — 1 Comment

  1. Unfortunately the subspecies that produced white, and also greyish, cheetahs was in India and has been lost. Cheetahs were captured for use in hunting, and the colour morphs were captured as curiosities, but cheetahs did not breed well in captivity. As a result those mutant lines were lost.

    There has been talk of reintroducing cheetahs into India from African stock.
