Speed Kills on Smithsonian Channel

Speed KillsHave you seen Speed Kills on the Smithsonian Channel? It’s a high-speed adventure program following the animal kingdom’s fastest predators in lagoons, deserts and forests. They use high-speed cameras to break down the exact method of attack that a predator uses to kill its prey:

They can accelerate faster than a Ferrari, strike with 10 times the g-force of a space shuttle, and outmaneuver a fighter jet. These are the fastest animals on Earth, and they use their speed to lethal effect in some of the planet’s most combative environments. Take a journey across deserts, dense jungles, and murky lagoons, and see how predators and prey run, swim, and fly for their lives. We capture every movement in high-definition, at 1,000 frames-per-second, so you won’t miss one graphic detail of this fast-paced and often violent world.

Check out this teaser for the program for some awesome highlights :

They have a bunch of videos on YouTube, and honestly we could watch these all day, they’re that good…
