THIS A TRIVIA;

Because It is the fastest land animal, reaching speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph)[3][4] in short bursts covering distances up to 460 m (1,510 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 103 km/h (64 mph) in three seconds, faster than most supercars.[5]

I think the human is the fastest animal. We were smart enough to build fast cars and planes so we can get over there faster. Much faster than any animal can travel.

Yes the human is an animal.

And you didn't define the mode of travel.

The fastest animal is a plant.

The bunchberry dogwood can move at over 100 body-lengths per second, with an initial acceleration of around 2400G (A shuttle launch is around 3G).

Rather misleading, Kiteman. You're referring to the acceleration and speed of pollen particles launched from the dogwood bunchberry's flowers, not to motion of the whole plant.

The cheetah is the fastest mammal on land. I believe the marlin is the fastest fish. The falcon is the fastest bird.

A flea can jump the equivalent of a football field.

Peregrine falcon. If you don't believe it, do the research yourself next time.

I've heard about the Peregrine falcon. It made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs!

Depends on if you need an absolute answer or a scaled answer.


Scaled the green mantis shrimp can move its claw faster than any other animal can move.


It matters how you define speed.


On land the cheetah can run faster than any other animal.
