Cheetah in Slow Motion

At 1200 frames per second, the first minute of this video only covers one second of the cheetah's run! Greg Wilson shot high-speed footage of five cheetahs from the Cincinnati Zoo, including the world-speed-record-holder Sarah, over three days to get this video. They ran at up to 60 miles per hour, so I would imagine the most difficult part would be keeping the cat toy ahead of them. Read more about cheetahs at National Geographic. (via Metafilter)
