Top 10 Fast Land Animals


The Top Ten

1 Cheetah Cheetah The cheetah, also known as the hunting leopard, is a big cat that occurs mainly in eastern and southern Africa and a few parts of Iran. The cheetah is the fastest land animal, able to run up to 75 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds

Amazingly fast

Cheetahs are so fast, the marks that run from their eyes down to their lower face area are like the stripes football players put under their eyes.

Definitely the fastest, their top speed is approximately 75 MPH but they can only run this fast in short bursts.

Cheetah the fastest animal thin but the king of speed

Faster then a cheetah!

3 Springbok Springbok
4 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Top speed for a lion is 49.7 MPH, which makes it slower than a quarter horse but faster than an elk
Interesting fact: Lions actually don't run much at all, it's the lionesses who do all the work, the lion simply breeds and watches over them. Also, the males get the first pick of what the females hunt

Lions are fastest big cat

5 Wildebeest Wildebeest Wildebeests, also called gnus, are antelopes in the genus Connochaetes. They belong to the family Bovidae, which includes antelopes, cattle, goats, sheep, and other even-toed horned ungulates.

14 Bear Bear Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.

These guys are very fast.


15 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

Elephants are faster then humans

Ya quite fast

16 Black Mamba Black Mamba The black mamba is a species of extremely venomous snake, a member of the family Elapidae native to parts of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Slithers 22 miles per hour faster than a average human. - dagon7898

17 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

Tigers are not made to run like Cheetahs, but they are still very fast with an average top speed of 30-40 kmph but only in short bursts, much like it's cousin. Cheetahs actually walk most of their time because it takes a lot of energy to run like that and they only do that to hunt most of the time.

Its extremely fast for its size ask a 9 foot 350 kg cheetah to run I bet it can't even walk like a tiger. Tigers too awesome to be challenged in this 30- 40 km per hour is too much for a giant cheetah

Fast but not that much because of its power. if god gave him this power than it would not have any weekness

18 Leopard Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various more.

Leapords should be ahead of the coyote because leapords run fast to ambush their prey. They also can run 40 - 45 miles per hour and the coyote can only run 40 - 43 miles per hour

19 Gorilla Gorilla Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa.
20 Hedgehog Hedgehog A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.

21 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.
22 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colors and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated. They are highly intelligent and good at problem solving.
23 Elephant Elephant Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant, although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species.
24 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

28 Hare
29 Bengal Tiger Bengal Tiger

Sure sharp teeth and powerful muscles make it seem fierce, but it's speed make it truly terrifying. I don't care who or what you are but have to be at least fifth place on this list. I mean come on they can run up to 60 mph

30 Emu Emu The emu is the second-largest living bird by height, after its ratite relative, the ostrich. It is endemic to Australia where it is the largest native bird and the only extant member of the genus Dromaius.
31 Giraffe

Giraffes are surprisingly fast

32 Peregrine Falcon Peregrine Falcon The peregrine falcon, also known as the peregrine, and historically as the duck hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae.

So fast. Faster then a cheetah and technically are land animals. They swoop down in a dive and are faster then a car.
