Director’s Cut of Cheetahs

December 13, 2012

Cheetahs are the fastest runners on the planet. The National Geographic recently captured this cheetah at the Cincinnati Zoo running 60+ miles per hour. The footage is the result of a Hollywood action film crew capturing five different cheetahs over several days. While watching the Director’s cut below, I could not believe just how much time the cheetah is literally suspended in the air while running. It’s incredible!

P.S. — Reminds me a little of watching Usain Bolt break the world record in London and become the world’s fastest man.

I live in Cincinnati and have seen that cheetah run. During the summer you can watch 2 cheetahs run at the Cincinnati Zoo and they are truly amazing.

Wow. I can’t believe how little the cheetah’s head moves while running, such incredible efficiency in motion. What beautiful creatures! Thanks for sharing this!
