Abstract [en]

Previous studies of cheetah purring havedescribed purring in adult cheetahs. This paperextends the cheetah purring research to includejuvenile and subadult cheetahs and analyzespurring data from cheetahs in ages rangingfrom 7 months to 7 years, and with weightsranging from 18 kilos to over 70 kilos. Resultsshow that while there is considerable variationacross most parameters analysed (amplitude,phase duration, cycles per phase andfundamental frequency), mainly attributable todegree of relaxation/agitation, previouslyreported observations that ingressive phasestend to be lower in frequency are largelyconfirmed, with one notable exception.
