     The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal and can reach speeds of over 200 mph, with the fastest recorded speed at 242 mph, but that is only when it dives, stoops, or soars. It is not as fast when travelling in level flight.

     This is actually a more complicated question than you may think. The Cheetah, the graceful and beautiful African cat is the fastest land animal in the world, able to achieve running speeds up to 120 km (75 miles) per hour. Their speed is used exclusively for hunting purposes.

    In terms of top speeds regularly achieved however, the Peregrine Falcon, a magnificent bird of prey achieves flying diving speeds while hunting that can reach 325 km (202 miles) per hour. This makes it by far the fastest animal although this is done while dive bombing prey.
