The Cheetah

The cheetah is the fastest land animal, capable of reaching speeds greater than 110 km/h (68.35 mph) in just over three seconds. At top speed, their stride is seven meters long. Its flexible spine, semi-retractable claws, long legs, and tail enable it to reach such high speeds. However, accelerating takes a lot of energy, and their bodies can only function at such intensity for 30 seconds or less so spend most of their time sleeping.
