National Geographic has released a stunning slow-motion video capturing every nuance of a sprinting cheetah’s movements, with the animal running at top speeds of 60+ miles per hour. Working in co-operation with the Cincinnati Zoo and drawing on the skills of a Hollywood action movie crew, the National Geographic team used a Phantom camera capable of shooting at 1200 frames per second to film the movements of the magnificent feline.
