    They really coil up and launch on each step.

    If you look closely, not more than one paw is on the ground for more than a split second. So pretty much only one paw on the ground at any given time.

    Amazing critters, and while they aren't that big a cat compared to the lions and tigers, sure wouldn't want one chasing me around the parking lot at Wal-Mart !!:wow:

    The only other animal that can come close to the speed of a cheetah is a Frenchman on Friday, leaving the construction site I'm on.:supergrin:

    Impressive, but still not as fast as an Ethiopan chicken.

    Had a African wild cat buddy as an outdoor cat that looked like it could move pretty quick.

    That's right. Also look closely at the paws as they descend toward the ground. The claws extend for that little extra bit of traction, then retract as the foot rises for the next stroke. Phenominal!

    Awesome!

    On a side note, I wonder how many cheetahs have sack tapped themselves with their front paw. They get pretty close!

    I feel like that cheetah has ate 5 or 6 full grown men. Must have been fast back in the day.
