All that running for a ball of fluff. I would not be a very happy cheetah.

First, it's worth it to find the 1080p version on YT and download the file to watch in a proper player.

Second, I can't get over how still they hold their heads when running. That's not how it is, of course, since the neck muscles are working overtime to counteract the motion. But the result is, to my eye, astonishing. It's as if the cheetah's head is flying through the air, dragging the body behind.

#4 The Cheetah has its head directly connected to its spine, like a plate going thru the first few vertebrae, allowing to keep its head steady while running.

#4 Once the cheetah's head is fixed on it's prey, it stays completely still like this:

...except the cheetah's moving forward at over 100km/h, 60mph! Amazing!
