This is cool you should watch it: Impala escapes cheetahs after jumping into SUV

 

This amazing footage was recently recorded at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

I suspect that in its panic the impala (Artiodactyla: Bovidae: Aepyceros melampus) jumped into the open SUV window on accident, rather than doing so intentionally in order to escape. It seemed to work out well for the animal, however, as the pursuing cheetahs (Carnivora: Felidae: Acinonyx jubatus) were left without a meal.
