Abstract:
Cheetahs are of the endangered species of Iran. Not only are they a part of the natural history of this land, but they play a role in our culture and civilization. Therefore, the present study, using historical sources and references, intends to study the position of cheetahs in the history of Iran and to answer the fundamental question of what position and functions this animal has had in Iranian history. The findings of the study suggest that in Iran’s history, the cheetah has been used as a hunting animal and in some cases was sent to the kings as a precious gift. Even during the Mongol era, a fixed tax was obtained from the provinces where cheetahs lived. In addition, our poetry and prose have been influenced by the cheetah so that many references to it can be found in our literature.
