It is kind of funny, and even belittling for the greatest creature on earth which is human runs just 40 miles an hour not even among the list of the fastest animals. Well, I would say it is because of the superb knowledge human has in which with implementation as resulted to the production of vehicles, and lots of transportation medium to ease transportation. Who would want to venture on a long journey while there are vehicles to ease the stress? I guess no one would.
Today we at The Buzz Lifes gives you the top list of fastest animals on the planet.
10 Brown Hare
With such a small size, Brown Hare still made it on the list. Brown hare are small mammals native to Western Europe and Asia. Brown hares are larger in size than that off rabbits, have longer legs, longer ears and black tips than rabbits. Brown hare can gain maximum speed of 77 km per hour.
The powerful hind legs of brown hare help them to gain speed in short time. They normally runs in straight paths also can change the direction in no time, can maintain speed in zigzag movement. The speedy movement of brown hare help them to escape from large number of natural predators.
9 Blue Wildbeest
The blue wildebeest, also called the common wildebeest, white-bearded wildebeest or brindled gnu, is a large antelope and one of the two species of wildebeest. They are grass eating mammals native to south and east Africa. They grow up to a height of 1.30 meters. The strong legs and shoulders help Blue Wildbeest to gain speed up to 80 km per hour. The speedy movement helps Blue Wildbeest to find shelters from predators and to make migration easily
8 Thomson’s Gazelle
The Thomson’s gazelle is one of the best-known gazelles. It is named after explorer Joseph Thomson and is sometimes referred to as a “tommie”. It is another creature in the same category as wildebeests and lions, also capable of running at around 50 miles per hour. Chases between lions and cheetahs and gazelles can be quite intense as a result of the close speed matching. Unfortunately for Thomson’s gazelles, they are the preferred prey of cheetahs, the fastest animal on our list.
