Race Against Extinction

WRITTEN BY // Claudia Hauter CATEGORIES // Capecheetah-blog

Race Against Extinction

Human beings have an innate need to constantly prove themselves; to do the improbable, to be the best or, as is the case with Usain Bolt, the fastest. He has already proved himself by being the fastest human being alive, and now he wants to take the title of being the fastest land mammal away from the cheetah.

The latest revelation comes in the form of a cheetah robot. What, you ask, could possibly be the point of that? We asked ourselves the same question. Surrounded by the real thing as we are at Inverdoorn, we could not possibly conceive of this robot's...
