The previous holder of this record was a male cheetah called Nyana-Spier. Before His death Nyana-Spier lived at the Cheetah Outreach Project then based at the Spier Wine Estate, Stellenbosch near Cape Town.

In 2001 I visited South Africa and I went to the Cheetah Outreach Project. For a small fee you could enter a cage (with two keepers) and stroke a cheetah. I was lucky enough to get to stroke Nyana-Spier, the world's fastest land animal.
