The Animal Ark is a wild animal rescue and sanctuary site outside of Reno. They take in animals that are unable to survive on their own in the wild for various reasons. We spent an afternoon looking at some of their animals and then got to watch the “Cheetah Run”. The staff has discovered that if they have the Cheetah run once a week they live about twice as long as other Cheetah in captivity. We were able to photography the three Cheetah they have there. They look much faster in person than watching a National Geographic episode.
