WATCH: GoPro camera strapped to Cheetah running at full speed

WATCH ABOVE: Savanna goes at full speed with a GoPro camera strapped to her back.


Ever wondered what it would be like riding on the back of a Cheetah?

Well, The Cincinnati Zoo uploaded a new video to YouTube showing the speeds you’d be traveling at from the Cheetah’s perspective after zoo keepers strapped a GoPro on to her back.

According to The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s YouTube Page, Savanna, a full grown Cheetah used in the zoo’s running program, wasn’t fazed about carrying a GoPro harness.

Alicia Sampson, a trainer for the zoo’s cat ambassador program, said that their cats are hand trained from a very young age.

“We put [the GoPro harness] on Savanna and she could really care less,” said Sampson. “She’s used to harnesses and she’s collared so it’s just another day for her.”
