The cheetah is the fastest land animal. The fastest flying animal is the peregrine falcon. The fastest use of appendages is the mantis shrimp. The fastest acceleration for jumping is the flea. And to round out the top five: The mandibles of the trap-jaw ant can shut in the fastest reflex ever recorded in the animal kingdom.
