Learn all about a cheetah's velocity as the Kratt brothers follow one cheetah mother on her hunt for food for her family. Viewers learn about the speed and efficiency with which cheetah's hunt and eat! From this video, students learn about how the speed of cheetahs is possible because of their stride and their tail. Viewers also learn that despite their speed on the hunt, cheetahs are wiped out once they do catch the prey so they must eat what they catch very quickly!
