MAGNIFICENT: Cheetahs Running In Super Slow Motion

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.
