Cheetahs Finish First

We’ve seen Phantom cameras being put to good use before. Tom Guilmette was stuck in a hotel room with one, while Ty Migota had fun with cocktails, and Zach King broke up a tea party. And Gallagher, well, he’s just Gallagher.

This time, National Geographic in collaboration with the Cincinnati Zoo used the pricey Phantom gear to shoot one of nature’s fastest creatures. In full stride, the cheetah can reach speeds up to 120 km/h, and the team used the high-speed camera to capture the animal’s gait at 1,200 frames per second. Expectedly, the results are stunning. Have a look at Cheetahs on the Edge below.

Bush Babe & his Big Cats

Tarzan 1

I don’t know about y’all but this wild thing sure makes my heart sing! Super hot 28-year-old Frenchman Olivier Houalet has hand-reared five orphan cheetah cubs in the Namibian wilderness, and he’s about to release them into an independent life in the bush. I wouldn’t have minded being hand-reared by this hottie at all! Thanks to the Daily Mail for this bit of  yummy.
