Cheetahs just like their counterparts (Lion) don’t roar. The reason cheetahs can’t or don’t do this is due to difference in a piece of anatomy in the throat called the hyoid bone. Research made it known that all cats have this hyoid bone, but only the big ones that can roar have a two-piece hyoid bone.
These aforementioned two-piece hyoid bone is what makes it possible for cats to roar. It is known that Cheetahs only possess a one-piece hyoid bone and this one factor makes it hard for them to roar just like other big cats.
Research has it that chirping sound is the most common sound Cheetahs are known for, this chirping sound is a high pitched barking sound that they use when they try to find another cheetah. The chirps can be so loud that they can be heard from over a mile away.
The only cats that can roar are the lion, tiger, leopard, and jaguar
