National Geographic has released an astonishing compilation of cheetahs in a slow motion animal video.

The video features footage taken at the Cincinnati Zoo by videographer Greg Wilson. It was shot at 12,000 frames per second on a high-speed setting over the span of three days. Wilson shot five different cheetahs and focused particularly on a cheetah by the name of Sarah who is the world record holder for fastest speed. These beautiful beasts are majestic to watch and remind viewers of the beauty of animals and nature. The fierce felines run at 60 miles per hour, so Wilson had to film rapidly in order to record them properly.

This slow motion animal video by Greg Wilson captures rare footage of ferocious cheetahs and their ability to run like the wind.
