The cheetah is a species of big cat found in The Barrens, the Badlands, and Thousand Needles.
Druids can shapeshift into [Travel Form], which looks exactly like a cheetah. So far, although these mobs look like a cheetah, none of them are named as such.

Cheetahs are swift feline predators of the plains. A cheetah is 3 to 5 feet long and weighs 110 to 130 pounds. Cheetahs make sudden sprints to bring down prey. A cheetah that hits with a claw or bite attack can attempt to trip the opponent. If the attempt fails, the opponent cannot react to trip the cheetah. At times, a cheetah can move ten times its normal speed when it makes a charge.
