"Studies suggest that the papillae shape (tiny scoop-shaped structures made of keratin that help give the cats tongue its texture) may help the cat with gripping food during eating, and the sharp tip may help with tissue deformation and penetration into meat."

That cheetah is tenderizing that man, lol

The guy's name is Dolph Volker. He's an animal advocate who calls himself "The Cheetah Whisperer".

To be fair, we humans are not prey animals to cheetahs. There is no documented case of any cheetah ever having hunted, killed or eaten a human. That being said, they are wild animals and may fight if they feel threatened and backed into a corner.

I'm fatter than your average human.... Sharks might mistake me for a whale. To a cheetah, im probably a buffet on a conveyor belt.

If you have the decency to just drop dead yourself perhaps. The jaw muscles of a cheetah are too weak to break the neck of any animal our size, and evolution isn't kind to predators that try to tackle much larger animals without an instant-kill strategy.

If it's a fair fight, maybe, but if he spots me and triggers the flight, not fight reflex, his teeth are going in me like a hot knife thur butter.

Well, fortunately for you cheetahs are more prone to take flight. Comes from not being an apex predator in their habitat and those damn lions always wanting to bully them.

But yeah, if it would come to a fight, their sharp teeth and claws will win over your munchies and fingernails.
