File this under the nascent category of "frightened rodents on YouTube." A certain clip from the nature documentary BBC's Africa, narrated by David Attenborough has caught the attention of internet meme-makers, and sure enough it's now making the rounds online.
The 20 second snippet of footage takes place somewhere on the great continent, and what little context we have depicts a spotted cheetah on the hunt. "He's blown it," Attenborough says, as a succession of prey high-tails it out of the cheetahs hungry path. Last is our little friend the squirrel, who drops his own tasty lunch to head for the hills.
It's hard to beat a really funny animal vid. Watch it below.
