[Ed. Note: For our new readers, Monday is our viral video day. Each Monday, we post our favorite video that we’ve come across during the previous week. Hopefully, it makes the beginning of your work week suck just a little less.]

To be honest, I don’t know much about impalas. I know that they are found in Africa but that’s pretty much it. After this video, though, I also have discovered that impalas are pretty crafty. Or, at least one impala is.

For a second, it looks like nature is about to take its course in Kruger National Park in South Africa. Two cheetahs appear to have cornered an impala that couldn’t keep up with its herd. At the last minute, however, the impala leaps through a SUV window and manages to escape. I bet the passengers in the car are happy that the cheetah didn’t decide to hop in the SUV as well.
