The video above by Smithsonian Channel explains pretty well why cheetah is known as the world’s fastest land animal.
It might surprise you but an average cheetah can accelerate up to 75 MPH in just three seconds. Its body is created and built for speed. From its flat head to light weight body, everything is meant to speed up this wild creature.
It is hard to believe the legs of this land animal stays more in the air then on the ground. Shocking, right?
The video is from last October but just started to trend on the internet, boggling the minds of many users.
Here are a few comments from the Redditors.
I would like to see a video where they show how the surrounding would look like if one is a running cheetah.
Ever been on a roller coaster? I would imagine it is something like that.
So, were you surprised at all with this information? Let us know with your comments.
