Cheetah Runs

It s no secret that the Cheetah is the fastest land animal on the planet, but it s sometimes hard to put their tremendous speed into perspective.

Consider this: you could be cruising along the highway doing 65 and it would be entirely possible to look out your window and see a cheetah actually pass you.

When it comes to actual metrics, the cheetah can run as fast as 70 mph during short bursts.

On the acceleration front, the cheetah isn t a slouch either as it can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds, about as quick as a tricked out Tesla Model S.

So while we ve all likely seen footage of cheetah s running at full throttle in the field, typically in chase of some prey, we ve yet to see a first-hand perspective of a cheetah doing its thing.

One interesting observation noted in the video above is that the cheetah, even when running at top speed, is able to keep its head at a relatively steady level.
