There are two species of animals that are considered fastest animals, but among the two, one is the fastest land animal.
Before we conclude on which is the fastest among the two fastest animals, let take a brief biography of the two animals and then decide which one runs faster.
Biography Of Cheetah
Cheetah a large carnivorous cat that lives in Africa and central Iran. This is the fastest terrestrial animal, capable of running at speeds from 80 -128 km / h (50 to 80 mph), and as such, has several adaptations for speed, including a light physique, long thin legs and a long tail.
Cheetahs typically reach 67–94 cm (26–37 inches) in the shoulder, and head and body lengths range from 1.1 to 1.5 m (3.6 to 4.9 feet). Adults usually weigh between 20 and 65 kg (44 to 143 pounds).
His head is small, rounded, with a short face and tear-black features. The coat is dark brown to creamy white or pale yellow in color and is generally covered with evenly spaced solid black spots.
A cheetah is a slightly folded, spotted cat with a small rounded head, short muzzle, black tear-like veins of the face, deep chest, long thin legs and long tail.
The Biography Of Horse
Horse is herbivorous, one of two existing subspecies of Equus ferus. This is an ungulate mammal of a strange type, belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae.
Over the past 45-55 million years, the horse has evolved from a small many-legged creature, Eochippus, into a large homogeneous animal today. People began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and it is believed that their taming was widespread by 3000 BC The horses in the caballus subspecies are domesticated, although some domesticated populations live in the wild like wild horses.
These wild populations are not real wild horses, as the term is used to describe horses that have never been domesticated, such as Przewalski’s endangered horse, a separate subspecies and the only remaining real wild horse. There is an extensive specialized vocabulary used to describe concepts related to horses, covering everything from anatomy to life stages, size, color, marking, breed, locomotion and behavior.
Horses are equiped for running, allowing them to quickly run away from predators, having an excellent sense of balance and a strong “fight or run” reaction. In this regard, the need to flee from predators in the wild is an unusual feature: horses can sleep both standing and lying, and young horses tend to sleep much more than adults.
Now, having read and noted the speed effected by both land animals and their biography , which of the two do you consider the fastest?
But I can say that the cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world.
