Don't Race against a Cheetah

You've undoubtedly heard that cheetahs can do 75 miles per hour. But maybe you didn't realize how quickly they can get there: A cheetah can accelerate from 0 to 60 m.p.h. in an absurd three seconds flat, making it faster than a Ferrari Enzo, a McLaren F1 and a Lamborghini Gallardo.

That's pretty nuts.

Now meet the tiger beetle. It moves so fast (5mph / 120 body lengths per second) it basically goes blind and has to stop to see where it's going next.

Pretty interesting: Meet The Predator That Becomes Blind When It Runs After Prey – Phenomena: Not Exactly Rocket Science

Good thing they're small, or we'd be pretty F'd.

That's insane, I never would of thought of cheetahs running up to their speed as acceleration, but it really puts it into perspective
