The Quiz: What is the fastest land mammal in the world?
You wouldn’t want to enter a footrace with a cheetah. The fastest recorded cheetah reached 71 miles per hour, and in the wild, they regularly reach speeds of 60 miles per hour while chasing prey. For context, sprinter Usain Bolt, widely considered the fastest human alive, maxed out at a top speed of 27 miles per hour. The large, spotted cats are found in Africa, where they hunt smaller animals like rabbits and antelopes.
The correct answer to this quiz is Cheetah.
