With the stadium closed to outside visitors and the turf marked for the St. Petersburg Bowl football game, the cheetahs were encouraged to run the length of the field, chasing a lure system identical to the one in their Cheetah Run habitat. The cats' efforts were captured by high-definition and slow-motion cameras for the Saving a Species series for teachers.

was hoping to see several wide shots of the cheetah covering the full length of the 100 yards at least 3 times, and then maybe the fastest NFL player super imposed on top of it. Instead i got a bunch of pointless slow-mo shots from varying angles that were mostly close up and some overly passionate she-male speak at length of how well the animal adapted to the light, the ground, the environment, and everything else other than how quick the cheetah was over 100 yards...

haha it looks so insanely fast on that wide shot. Players returning a kick will never look the same to me
