False - Gestation is approx a year - not nine months as above. Foals usually born in summer months.

cheetah's trained to hunt? that's their natural instinct to hunt. But they are tamed. Just my 5cents worth

True or false? Owls are far-sighted, meaning that anything within a few inches of their eyes can’t be seen properly.

Good Q, Philip. :thumbs_up:

Strangely, it's TRUE - you wouldn't think it considering their hunting expertise - they are indeed unable to focus acutely on near-sighted objects; which is why they rush the prey at high speed once its sighted and grab it in one motion if they can.
