        Cheetah Racer | Wild Kratts

        Join Chris and Martin on a Creature Adventure with the world's fastest land animal: the cheetah. In this full episode with accompanying clips, Chris and Martin are on a mission to prove that no creature or vehicle can travel as fast over the rough and tumble African savannah as the cheetah. Aviva takes the challenge and declares she will build a ground racer that can run even faster than a cheetah. Of course, Zach wants to prove that he is a better inventor than Aviva and joins the race. The team, inspired by the cheetah, "revs up" to explore the different functions required for speed, build a cheetah racer, and win the race. Learn how the anatomy of a cheetah enables it to reach up to 70 mph, with a flexible back bone for wider strides and long tail for balance, as well as the techniques it uses to catch its prey.

        Racing the Cheetah | Wild Kratts

        In this animated segment, Martin is on a mission to out-run a cheetah and thinks his rockin' running shoes can compete with a cheetah's anatomy which is built for speed. The science team devises a plan to get a cheetah to chase a hologram gazelle and prove once and for all that a cheetah's long legs help make it the fastest land animal. Martin can only reach up to 15 mph, while a cheetah can reach 70 mph, so it's no competition!

        Wild Kratt vs. Cheetah Cat | Wild Kratts

        In this animated segment, the science team is trying to observe exactly what makes the cheetah so fast! Using his Creature Power Suit, Chris transforms into a gazelle, an animal that cheetahs often make their prey. When Chris catches the cheetah's eye, the science team learns how a cheetah stalks its prey, and the evasive measures gazelles can take to avoid becoming dinner! Learn how a cheetah has a highly flexible backbone that allows it to have a wider stride with each step and a long tail to help it balance on the zigzagging path of a gazelle.
