4 Cheetah Hits Her Stride at 60 mph and Leaves Dust on the Open Plains of Ngorongoro Crater as She Closes in on a Thompson's Gazelle

4 Cheetah hits 60 mph and kicks up dust as she runs after a Thompson's Gazelle on the open plains of Ngorongoro Crater. This is the classic pose with all four feet under her in overdrive. The adult zebras are unconcerned--they know she is not going to try to take down a dangerous adult zebra.
