What animal is the fastest land animal on earth?
A cheetah can easily accelerate to 63 mph in just... three seconds! No wonder cheetahs are considered the fastest land animals on our planet. If a cheetah peaks up the pace, it can run even faster, 75 mph.
All the other animals from the list are also quite fast, but their maximum speed is a bit less impressive:
- The springbok reaches speeds up to 62 mph.
- The pronghorn antelope can run 55 mph.
- Lions can run up to 50 mph.
