Cheetahs are excellent hunters. First of all they approach their prey very carefully until they are within a few meters, then when... the time is right, they run at lightning speed. If the fleeing prey suddenly changes direction, the Cheetah can simply turn its body mid-leap. Its flexible spine makes this possible.
