I had to share this with you guys. It's incredible footage of a cheetah running full speed being tracked by a camera shooting as 1200fps

Its interesting how the limbs overlap to achieve such a huge stride.

Also, I was noticing that there there is a moment where the left to right legs are in sync almost as if it's diving, but then they come out of sync to be able to hit the floor at different times. I think it's because moving the mass of the limbs together propulses the center of gravity forward, while having one leg back and one forward wouldn't as much.
