Although the speediest of land animals cannot match the times of the fastest flyers, the cheetah, recognized as the world’s fastest runner, is able to run 70 MPH for short distances.
The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is the fastest land animal on Earth, capable of reaching speeds as high as 75 mph or 120 km/h. While a cheetah’s top speed ranges from 65 to 75 mph (104 to 120 km/h), its average speed is only 40 mph (64 km/hr), punctuated by short bursts at its top speed.
Cheetahs can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 70 miles per hour. While they are the fastest land animal in the world, they can only maintain their speed for only 20 to 30 seconds.
Cheetahs are built for speed, but they cannot outrun a poacher’s bullet. 90 percent of the cheetah population has disappeared from the wild over the last century, and conservation experts warn that cheetah populations continue to collapse in the wild, in large part due to poaching.
20 mph is very fast. On the other hand, the maximum speed that a human has ever reached swimming is 5.12 mph. For most swimmers, the front crawl is the fastest and most efficient stroke. Faster humans can sprint at 15.9 miles per hour, or 100 meters in 13 to 14 seconds.
Even when lacking a front foot, a coyote can still run at around 32 km/h ( 20 mph ).
The mighty cheetah has been clocked at 75 mph — the speediest runner on the planet. Perhaps you know that the fastest animal in the sea, the sailfish, cruises through the water at 68 mph. In the sky, the peregrine falcon reigns supreme.
In order to catch their prey, tigers are capable of short bursts of high speed running. The deer runs faster than tiger in my opinion deer desire only for his life save and he looks back the tiger chase in running time.

Laser beams travel at the speed of light, more than 670 million miles per hour, making them the fastest thing in the universe. So how does a laser produce the slowest thing on Earth?
Cheetahs can only run for upto 30 seconds. And they cover upto 1 km.
Over an extended distance the horse can outrun the cheetah. But nothing surpasses this cat in short sprints: it can accelerate from 0 to 45 mph (0 to 72 kph) in 2 seconds.
