Cheetah run: heads and tails

leave a comment »

Vimeo explains:

Using a Phantom camera filming at 1200 frames per second while zooming beside a sprinting cheetah, the team captured every nuance of the cat’s movement as it reached top speeds of 60+ miles per hour.

If that was a single animal on a single run, one would not fail to be impressed by how steady the head is during the sprint. A human head, on the other hand, bobs up and down while running.
