Top 10 Fastest Land Animals in the World

Our animal kingdom is filled with natural runners. Running is necessary for the survival in the wild where the weak becomes the food of the strong. If an animal lacks the ability to run from danger or to chase their prey, then it is most likely that animal will die soon. There are other faster animals than the animals listed here that travel in water and on air. But for this purpose, we will just consider land animals.

10. Coyote


Coyote can be found in North America. It is carnivorous and mostly feeds on rodents and farm animals. They are smaller than wolves and can run as fast as 43 mph. They cannot just run fast but they can also jump really high. One unique attribute of coyote is their hearing ability, they can hear a frequency of 80 KHz.

    A correction on the cheetah. They do not have sharp claws. Their claws are always partially out so are blunt from touching the ground. They are semi-retractable and used for grip when running, not for climbing trees or bringing prey down. They also do not have strong jaws. Their heads are smaller than other big cats and because they have large nasal passages to bring in more oxygen when running, they have a smaller jaw and shorter canines. Because of this, they usually kill their prey by grasping the throat and suffocating rather than biting through the neck like most big cats. They are built for speed so lack the strength and power of other big cats.

    The Cape Hunting Dog is an old name and Wild Dog is more commonly used today.
