Video: Oh, a cheetah in (slow) motion

Majestic.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC AND the Cincinnati Zoo teamed up to make this video of a cheetah running in super-slow motion.

They used a camera filming at 1200 frames per second to capture what cheetahs look like while they’re running at speeds close to 60 miles per hour.

After a little bit you should skip to the five-minute mark when they film the cheetah from the front. It’s amazing. His head barely moves.

Beautiful (via Devour):
