How do cats always land on their feet?
No, it's not magic.
The new BBC show Life In The Air tackled this question by filming the fall of a cat called the African caracel. Apparently the trick is in the physics.
By rotating the top part of its body one way, and the bottom half of its body the other, the cat managed to get some level of control out of the free-fall, landing safe and sound on its paws.
Well, maybe a little magic... watch the clip below to see!
