WATCH: Cheetah Climbs Into Car With Passenger

The chances of this happening to you are slim to none, but still. What would you do in this situation? For wildlife photographer, Peter Heistein, he had a once in a lifetime encounter when a cheetah in the Serengeti hopped up into his car and hung out there for 10 MINUTES! 

 

The best advice in this situation would be to stay incredibly still in order to not startle the creature. This is precisely what Peter did while simultaneously recording this incredible video footage for us! 

"A cheetah decided to explore our vehicle on a safari I was leading... Another jumped on the hood and was staring at us through the windshield. They were just curious, we kept calm and let them go about their business."

The cheetahs were fascinated by the vehicle, but mercifully, they spotted a gazelle and came to the conclusion that it was more interesting. This was a thrill of a lifetime for Peter and thankfully he made it to tell the tale.
