In a wildlife reserve, two cheetahs chased and captured an impala right in front of a vehicle full of tourists.
Cheetahs are known to be the fastest land animals over short distances, thanks to their incredibly quick running abilities. According to the World Wildlife Fund, they can reach speeds of up to 64 miles per hour (103 kilometers per hour) in just 3 seconds.
Observing a cheetah in full sprint is an awe-inspiring sight, and when two of them are on the hunt, it becomes even more formidable.
A recently surfaced video on the internet depicts two cheetahs in hot pursuit of a herd of impalas in a jungle, ultimately capturing one of them. The video has quickly gone viral on multiple platforms.

The group can be seen fleeing from the cheetahs that are pursuing them in the video that was recorded in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve in South Africa. They successfully catch one of the impalas and proceed to feast on it after the intense chase.
Users have expressed admiration and provided varied responses to this natural occurrence of predator and prey in the video, which has garnered numerous likes and views on Facebook and Instagram.
“Great video, but tourists should refrain from screaming, as it may alert the hyenas and leave the cheetahs without food,” commented one user.
“Survival of the fittest in the jungle,” wrote another user.
The cheetah’s ability to achieve incredible speeds is attributed to its unique and flexible spine, which allows for extreme flexion and extension while running at high velocities.
Just a few days ago, another video was circulating on the internet, beautifully capturing a cheetah’s hunting prowess.
The viral tweet was accompanied by a one-line caption in Spanish: “Velocidad y fuerza”, which translates to “speed and strength” in English.
