Marlice Van Der Merwen teases wild cheetahs in the grassland of Namibia.
Watch how she keeps eye contact with the cheetahs and maintains her size. The cheetahs do not attack her because she doesn’t behave like the prey they’re used to. Though they are trying to scare her, she doesn’t react by running away. Cheetahs usually dont attack taller creatures, but if you bend or fall on the ground they will. Keep that in mind should you ever come face-to-face with a cheetah!
