Some of these fly through the air, others swim through water and some run on land. Most of the fastest animals are birds so our list below includes a selection of the fastest of all these different types of animals. Here are 10 of the fastest animals in the world.
1-Peregrine Falcon: The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest bird, and in fact the fastest animal on the planet, when in its hunting dive, the stoop, in which it soars to a great height, then dives steeply at speeds of over 322km/hr. It reaches horizontal cruising speeds of up to 90 kph.
2-Spine-tailed Swift: The Spine-tailed swift is the fastest bird in powered flight, with a top recorded speed of 171km/h.
3-The frigate bird speed of 153km/h is helped by having the largest wingspan to body weight ratio of any bird and they are able to stay aloft for more than a week.
4-Spur-winged Goose: The Spur-winged goose is the world's largest goose and flies at 142km/h.
5-Sail Fish: The sail fish is easily the world's fastest fish, speeding through the water at 110km/h.
6-Marlin: Marlin can swim at 80km/h, followed by Wahoo at 78km/h and Tunny at 74km/h.
7-Cheetah: The cheetah is designed for running down fast prey and can reach a top speed of 113km/h, three times faster than the top running speed for a human which is about 36km/h.
8-Pronghorn Antelope: The Pronghorn antelope is the second fasted land animal and at 98km/h can out-sprint predators.
9-Blue Wildebeest: The Blue Wildebeest, Springbok and Thompson's gazelle can all run at about 80km/h which almost exactly matches the speed of a lion.
10-Brown Hare: The Brown hare's long back legs enable them to reach speeds of 77km/h, the same speed as their predator the red fox.
