The fastest animal on earth is the Peregrine Falcon. It can fly at speeds of 55 mph horizontally, but when flying downwards they reach speeds of over 270 mph. This speed can not be match by any other animal in the world, be it on land, sea or sky.

But if your talking about the fastest land animal it would be the Cheetah which can run upwards of 70 M.P.H
