Cheetahs on the Edge

This is an amazing video shot with a 1200fps high speed camera. It's absolutely mesmerizing and beautiful. I particularly like 2:40, where the cheetah comes within inches of the target. The behind the scenes stuff at the end is also quite amazing.

A cheetah wouldn't cheat, but a tiger would.

Wow. Amazingly fast.

I watched the first 30 seconds, and thought a lot of time must have gone by... but then I noticed the timer on the top left corner and was like DAMN!!! 1 second only?
