12SL_SUPR_FAST_COVwebCheetahs are known for being the fastest land animal. They can run as fast as 70 miles per hour (112 kmh) in short bursts. Now, thanks to the Cincinnati Zoo, we can see what they see as they run. The zoo put a harness with a GoPro camera on its cheetah, Savannah. They recorded a video of her running. The video shows how Savannah’s head does not move much, even when she runs very fast. This helps her focus on what she’s hunting. Zoo employees think this is the first time someone has put a camera on a running cheetah. They also said Savannah did not seem to mind.

Watch the video and learn more about Savannah the cheetah.
