MAGNIFICENT: Cheetahs Running In Super Slow Motion

cheetah-in-slow-motion.jpg

This is a video from National Geographic of cheetahs running in super slow motion. Cheetahs, as I'm sure you're aware, are the fastest land animal and can reach speeds up to 112 - 120 km/h (~70-75MPH). Plus accelerate from 0 - 100km/h (~62MPH) in less than three seconds. That's pretty quick. Way quicker than my car, which feels like it's going to explode if I go over 50. People on the highway hate me. "People everywhere hate you." I'm afraid to even leave my apartment.

Hit the jump for the worthwhile video, the end of which shows the setup of how they captured the footage.

Thanks to Sam the B (what's the B?!), who informed me the Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal in the entire animal kingdom and can reach up to 200MPH in a high-speed dive. The more you know.

There are Comments.

    I'd like to think the music gets increasingly more brutal and heavy as the video speeds up.

    Ok so the peregrine falcon may have a higer maximum speed in a dive but that doesn't make it a faster {"LAND"} animal, hence the Cheetas exclusive title.

  • This made me want to listen to Phil Collins...

  • RareAwesomeman

    i got to pet and walk cheetahs on leashes in Africa, they are some badass animals

  • ZomBBombeR

    Those ones couldn't have been, that, badass.

  • Leonidas Argidisouvlaki

    Really should've had those clips in full speed afterwards. They also really should've let me see the cheetah catching the damn pompom...

  • Jonny Campbell

    Towards the end of the video they show the set up and the cheetah running at full speed... and it gets the pompom... Should of kept watching.

    For some reason I want to yell out Maximize.
