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.

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.

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 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.
