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

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

Cheetah are very fast,but they hafve small stamina :/

2 Pronghorn Antelope Pronghorn Antelope
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

The Contenders

11 Horse Horse The horse is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus. It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae, and can be tamed, bred, and trained, as a mount.

Average top speed for the general horse is 54.7 MPH

12 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.

14 Black Mamba

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

15 Man
16 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

17 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

18 Gorilla Gorilla Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa.
19 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.
20 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.
