10. Horse

The fastest horses in the world are the American Quarter horses followed closely by the Thoroughbreds. The Arab is third in line in the breed for stamina and speed. However, there is a horse that is bred for its staying power, endurance and consistency. The quarter horse is able to sprint a short distance at a speed exceeding 50 mph. At a quarter mile, it can reach a speed of up to 55 mph which equates to 88.5 km/h.

9. Thomson’s’ Gazelle


On an uninterrupted plain the Thomson’s’ Gazelle has been recorded to reach a speed of up to 40 mph or 64 km/h. Thomson’s’ Gazelle populate the grasslands and even deserts. Nimble and fleet-footed, these game animals give birth to one or two young and hide them for days or weeks as they nurse. They then join the herd or a bachelor herd once they’re old enough.

8. Grant’s Gazelle


The Grant’s Gazelle, noticeably larger than the Thomson’s’ gazelle can exceed speeds of 80 mph but the male cannot reach any more than 45 mph. The two species do cohabit the plains and when the young are ready to mark territories, fighting may occur as a pretend ritual. It is usually a show of “whatever you’ve got, mine’s bigger” as they display their sides. A peaceful species, it roams the grasslands and is sought by cheetahs and African hunting dogs for food.

7. Red Fox

A Red Fox, when frightened will run at 50 km/h which equates to about 30 mph. Considered cute, the Red Fox is light on his feet and has become very social whilst searching for food. With a diet that varies, he’ll grow to about the size of a medium dog and will sport a bushy tail and a long slender snout. Found throughout the Northern Hemisphere, he has been seen in forests, deserts, marshes and on the open plains. He even goes so far as to be close to where humans inhabit the city. Typically red in color, they are also brown or silver and were sought after until recently for their fur. In the wild, they usually live only until they’re about 7 years old.

6. Brown Hare


Put a Brown Hare in danger and he’ll reach speeds up to 35 mph. As though they’re the greatest procrastinators in the world, they will not budge until the last minute. And with powerful back legs will carry the large body effortlessly across varied terrain. In order to protect himself, a hare will lie still as a broken watch until the danger has passed. Although he likes to lope along at a leisurely pace, he will in a matter of seconds be up and running like a streak through the grass until he has disappeared completely.

5. Lion


With the loudest roar of all the cats, he will live in a pride with related females and up to 3 unrelated males for his entire life. It is only for short bursts that a lion can exceed 50 mph, about 81 km/h. At 6 foot 5 inches from head to tail, he has a lot of muscular bulk to move. His mane adorns his neck for two reasons, he appears more intimidating to his male counterparts and it protects the vitals in his throat during a fight. A lion and his pride will dine largely on antelopes, zebras, and wildebeest.

4. Springbok


These curious little critters resemble antelopes and will reach a speed not exceeding 88 km/h. An African marsupial, they’re slenderly built with long legs that support approximately 40 kg. With black horns that curve backward, his white face and distinguished dark stripe that runs from his eyes to his mouth make it difficult to tell what sex he is. He’s active at dawn and at dusk when the danger is not as prevalent and keeps a harem of mixed sexes migrating across the grasslands. He breeds all year round after which a single calf is born to the dam after a pregnancy of 6 months. Sure footed, here are no major threats to his existence although hunted for his meat and skin.

3. Blue Wildebeest


Known as a gnu, with a hulking presence, the adult wildebeest can reach speeds of up to 80 km/h, about 50 mph. Hunted by cheetahs, the young are more susceptible but as the wildebeest prepares for its annual migration across eastern Africa, the young are old enough to endure the harsh and often unforgivable conditions. Whilst the front end of the animal is compact and very large and ungainly, the rear quarters have been built for stamina and speed. On average, the wildebeest will live until he is about 20 but they have been known to live to a ripe of age of 30.

2. Pronghorn Antelope


The Pronghorn is the fastest of the antelopes. Travelling exceptionally fast it was designed to test the speed on the fastest animal in the world. With an inbuilt ability to evade a predator, it is one of the fastest mammals with a top speed of 95 km/h. His coat is designed to protect them from the harsh terrains of the flat lands on which he runs. Second, only to the cheetah, it can sustain high speeds at distances longer than a cheetah can. Created with a very large heart and lungs, it cannot leap well and avoids jumping over fences preferring to go under them, sometimes at high speed.

1. Cheetah


The cheetah, considered to be the fastest mammal on the face of the earth exceeds speeds of 110 and is known to reach a maximum of 120 km/h. It can reach its top speed within 3 seconds. With a flat shaped tail, used as a rudder, the big cat uses it to steer and keep his balance as he runs. With claws resembling those of a dog’s, they work like cleats on a football boot that gives the cheetah traction. The dark ‘tear’ marks that fall from its eyes to its nose act like sights as on a rifle, keeping the prey in focus as they hunt. A magnificent study in motion, every muscle ripples under a coat that is designed to grow from black spots on their skin. Their stride can reach between 6 and 7 meters and their feet touch the ground only twice during each stride.

There are birds that travel faster across the skies than the fastest animals and fish that swim fastest in the oceans. Each has its territory; every animal ever created has been built for endurance according to its environment and whilst the food chain is ever just, one hopes that every animal has a fair chance to escape the perils of their prey.
