The Top 20 Fastest Animals in the World (COMPLETED!)

If you've seen my other threads, you may be familiar with my top ten lists as I have been working on a lot of lists throughout the last year. I work with reptiles and study animal biology and have worked in many labs for research. And have done extensive research before hand for these lists, but obviously, like any list, they may not be perfect but the best I can come up with.

This list, we’re going to look at the top 20 fastest animals on land, in water and in the sky (run/swim/fly). The real top 20 would mostly consist of birds, so I just chose 2 birds to put on the list. Obviously, this list may not be perfect, I may have missed some animals out but this is the best I can came up with from research. Always, feel free to make your own lists.

20. Coyote

43.5 mph
69.6 km/h

19. Elk

45 mph
72 km/h

18. Greyhound

45 mph
72 km/h

17. Cape Hunting Dog

16. Tunny Fish

46 mph
73.6 km/h

15. Yellowfin Tuna

46.3 mph
