Makh: That was seriously good. I like how the first part of the video is roughly 2 seconds of actual running.
Rincewind53: I love how the head remains almost perfectly still, so that the cheetah doesn't lose track of the animal.
wildcardjack: Actually leads me to wonder where the kangaroo's hop came from.The kangaroo occupies an ecological niche similar to the deer, but I don't associate a predator. I wonder if the Australian aboriginals had something to do with that.
prjindigo: "stunning" lolfarking children writing web articles while masturbating in public.I've seen a slow-mo video of a cheetah closing on prey at about 50mph, the prey didn't move. The cheetah snagged it, tore if off the ground breaking the prey's stuck leg and did a tumble, the prey arched into the air as the cheetah and it tumbled downrange a bit and the cheetah recovered enough to pounce back on the prey and kill it.like the best cat attack video out there on the web... and it was 1986lolfarking children masturbating on the web like everything is so new.
JesusJuice: Anyone else notice the cheetah's big floppy balls?
farker99: If you ever have a chance to watch one run in person, GFI.Truly an amazing thing to watch./have photos of one running directly at me at about 55MPH//Won an award for it too.
Pentaxian: We were at the Bronx Zoo when my daughter was a toddler and we went to see the cheetah and I would swear that that cat was stalking my daughter. And anytime she would move one way the cheetah would follow her she'd turn around and the damn thing would do the same thing. Kind of cool, kind of creepy.
mr_a: I would love to see the same camera shoot some video of Usain Bolt.
Fano: I'm thinking of the olympic cartoon with a goat and cheetah holding hands during a marathon, falling in love in slomo
TwistedIvory: That's amazing. Right about 5:20 you can see the cat flex its paws -- claws out, toes spread -- in anticipation for the next leap. Wow.
PYROY: TwistedIvory: That's amazing. Right about 5:20 you can see the cat flex its paws -- claws out, toes spread -- in anticipation for the next leap. Wow.Their claws are always out.
John Buck 41: The last :90 of credits and backslapping was well done//eyeroll///actual vid of the cheetah was cool
