Human's are not so fast, we cannot even compare our speed to most vehicles. The truth is that humans are slow but this is not the same case in the animal kingdom.
The animal kingdom has many fast animals that are much more faster than most humans, if not all humans.You may have wondered from time to time just what great speed means in the animal world? Mostly, it aids the process of hunting for prey, but that does not always have to be the case. When God created these animals. He gave them different speeds for different reasons with some animals in the same class being faster than others. We bring you the 10 fastest animals and you will be shocked to know that an animal on our list goes between 70 to 75 miles per hour.
