Cuddly house cats and their ferocious, jungle cousins aren't really that different. As evidence, check out the super slow motion video below comparing a black leopard to a black domestic cat and watch for all the feline similarities.

The video was captured with a Phantom camera, capable of shooting up to 2500 frames per second to help create the super slow motion effect.

If you're curious how trainers got the two cats to perform so well for the Phantom camera, check out the behind-the-scenes video at the bottom of this page. (Spoiler alert: food was involved.)

If you liked the video, check out this super slow motion clip, also shot with a Phantom camera, of dogs catching balls underwater.

And then, of course, there are these perfectly timed cat photos also for your viewing pleasure.
