Most of the time, it lounges and plays. When its time to hunt, the cheetah will stalk and expend sudden bursts of energy to chase down prey. Full sprints chases usually last 20 seconds and seldom go longer than a minute.
The cow on the other hand, is a domesticated animal which doesn't hunt. As a ruminant, it is a herbivore and grazes between 7 to 12 hours a day. Commercially bred cows are fed a high-grain diet to facilitate rapid weight gain. I think the cow reminds me of a modern sedentary office worker.
We end up looking like what we eat. Do we graze or only eat when we are hungry? Do we plod along like a cow or do our exercise patterns mirror the sudden energy intensive patterns of a cheetah?
To summarize, I work like a cow but play like a cheetah. :)
