Cheetal behaviour to detect and communicate danger are the alert posture. with tail being raised, thrumping ground by foreleg, scanning for danger, alarm call and forming tightly branched group. Cheetal is polygynous in nature. In breeding season the hinds segregate from herd to give birth in selected tall grass areas. The fawning peak occurs in april and may. Cheetal is a good grazer so helps in controlling the overgrowth of chaurs in Corbett National Park. Cheetal is the main source of food of tiger (Panthera tigris).
