The cheetah is considered the fastest land animal and is able to achieve speeds upwards of 70 miles per hour. It cannot, however, maintain this speed for very long, and prey that has a bit of luck can "wear down" the cheetah by avoiding it for about 10-15 seconds. The cheetah might be considered the quickest of land animals, too. It can reach speeds between 112 km/h (70 mph) and 120 km/h (75 mph) in short bursts up to about 460 m (500 yards), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 110 km/h (68 mph) in three seconds - faster than most super cars.
maybe cheetah
Firstly, it's land mammal and not land, secondly, the answer is the cheetah.
The Fastest air breather is peregrine falcon, when in it's dive, but the fastest non bird land animal is the cheetah when in it's sprint.
The cheetah is the fastest terrestrial animal.

In speed tests on a smooth surface, chasing food being dragged behind a Landrover, the cheetah "gave up" at about 65mph. Speed tests by South African zoologists on straight tracks support this figure as an effective maximum speed. That's over 100 kilometers per hour.

Occasionally, under perfect conditions, a cheetah in tip-top condition with a following wind, might just nudge 70 mph.

It is unlikely that such speeds are reached over the rough ground that the cheetah hunts.

The cheetah relies on its speed to capture prey, rather than stealth, like most cats.
Cheetahs hold the land speed record. They can reach about 130 kph running in short bursts.
Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake - Whilst a cheetah may reach 70-75 mph and is commonly thought of as the fastest land animal, this is not the case. The Rattlesnake can strike it's victim at 175 mph (a full 100 mph faster than the Cheetahs top running speed).
