Dolph C Volker has a fluffy sleeping buddy, but it’s not what you might expect. This zoologist uploaded a video to his YouTube channel where we can see him cuddling with Faith, a female handicapped African Cheetah. She was born with sterile meningitis that affected her nervous system, bones, and joints. When Faith snuggled underneath him, Dolph could feel her heartbeat with his head. The zoologist noticed the heart rate increasing when she was inhaling and decreasing when exhaling. Dolph believes, that during an intake of air, this helps in feeding their muscles with oxygen to generate a high release of energy and during an exhale it allows the blood stream to release the CO2.
