Cheetahs: Full Speed Running in HD Super Slow Mo

This is the most insane thing I have watched this week: A National Geographic film crew captured insane slow mo footage of cheetahs running 60+ MPH using a Phantom high speed camera filming at 1200 frames per second.

The film is a companion piece to the National Geographic article “Cheetahs on the Edge.”
