Cheetah with a Camera

Can you imagine trying to put a headband with a GoPro on a cheetah's head? Odyssey must be an unusually cooperative cat. He is out on the hunt with his siblings, which gives us a chance to see a chase from the cheetah's point of view. When things get going really fast, the production slides into slow motion to keep us from falling out of our chairs. It's a clip from the PBS Nature series Animals With Cameras. The chase itself reminds me of a study last week about how prey animals benefit when a predator cannot go in a straight line.
