The fastest land animal is the cheetah. It is known for running very fast. They can run about as fast as a car. Cars usually are driven at around 70 miles per hour and that is how fast cheetahs can run. As a matter of fact, they can run their fastest in a mere few seconds.
There are certain reasons by cheetahs can run fast and that is because they have certain body parts that help them run. Cheetahs barely touch the ground when they are running. Their cleat feet help them run as well as their tail provides for balance. However, it may seem odd that a cheetah only runs fast for a short amount of time and that has to do with their sleek physique.
