What was the fastest land animal in the world?
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).

Thanks for the feedback!
Cheetahs hold the land speed record. They can reach about 130 kph running in short bursts.
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 pr…ey 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.
No, the fastest animal on land is th cheetah.
well no it is the second because road runners are way faster meaning they zoom and you cant see them run. ostriches are fast but you can see them running and they only run fas…t enouhgh so you cant see them. and there is your answer road runners.
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. Spe…ed 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.
No, the cheetah is the fastest land animal. Leopards are not particularly fast, they don't chase their prey they usually ambush prey by dropping onto it from the branches of a… tree,
No.The cheedah is no, it is the cheetah, it can clock up to 60 miles per hour is short bursts
The cheetah can run 60 to 70 miles per hour.
on land...cheetah in the air...hawk in water.. sail fish
On land - the cheetah (over very short distances) can go about 100 km/hr (60 mph). In the air - A Peregrine falcon can dive (stoop) at 398 km/hr (242 mph) In water -… A Sailfish can go at rates of 110 km/hr (68 mph) For comparison - The fastest insect is tee Dragonfly clocked at 100 km/hr (60 mph) the worlds' fastest land animal is the cheetah, and the fastest sky animals are the falcon, the eagle, and the hawk, the fastest sea animal is the shark.
The antelope is the second fastest animal in the world and can even outrun the cheetah (the fastest animal in the world) since the cheetah can't maintain high speeds for a… any length of time.
it is a secretariat if u seen the movie,there was nobody behind him in the final race
