It is a useful animal that has been domesticated for human transportation and is commonly a star in races and sporting events. Name:Tiger Speed:96 kph, (60 mph)Height:90 cm, (2 ft, 11.4 in)Weight:250 kg, (551 lbs)Lifespan in Wild (years):9Description:Bengal tigers live in India and are the second largest of all tigers. A horse can reach speed of 18 mph and faster.
No and yes, the greyhound is faster than a horse in short distance while the horse would win in long distance. The lion is the 5th or 6th fastest land animal while the tiger does not even rank in the top 25.
They are rated as the 5th or 6th fastest land animal on earth. However, it might be fun to know that the fastest animal all categories is the peregrine falcon, which can reach a staggering 389 km/h (242 mph) when diving.
The white-throated needle tail is probably the fastest bird in horizontal flight, reaching speeds of 111.6 km/h (69,35 mph) flying straight. In tests, the Atlantic sailfish has reached speeds of 109 km/h (68 mph) while jumping.
Many sources states similar top speeds for tuna, marlin and swordfish, which can certainly be true since these three fishes have the same aerodynamic shape as and are closely related to the sailfish. The world's fastest land animal relative to its size is a mite found in California.
As a comparison, Usain Bolt, the fastest human in the world, has reached a top speed of 44.72 km/h (27.79 mph). We have as always chosen to use only reliable sources, but many numbers seem to be based on estimates rather than measurements.
Examples of animals that can run at up to 60 km/h (37 mph), and therefore end up just outside the list, are zebra , leopard , spotted hyena , red kangaroo and African wild dog . Examples of animals capable of almost reaching 70 km/h (43 mph) are tiger , coyote , wildebeest and gray wolf .
Wild donkeys are also fast runners, but we have not found any reliable source for their speed. Here is a list featuring the 12 fastest animals in the world, ranked by their top speed on land.
Greyhounds can make excellent companions in families, but must be allowed to run. The Thoroughbred is commonly considered to be the fastest horse breed in the world, and their average speed in races often exceeds 60 km/h (37 mph).
Many sources claim that the slightly smaller Quarter Horse (photo) is even faster than the Thoroughbred on shorter distances, but we have not found any reliable speed measurement that confirms that. According to the Swedish National Encyclopedia, hares can run at speeds up to 80 km/h (50 mph).
Many less reliable sources state that the European hare, with its long, strong hind legs, is the fastest hare in Sweden, and thus the fastest land animal in Europe. This is probably true, because the slightly smaller and chubbier mountain hare can run at 70 km/h according to the Swedish Hunters Association.
The mountain lion is a mighty and powerful cat living in North and South America. In North America, mountain lions mainly chase deer, and with their powerful legs they can jump 12-13 m (40-45 ft) and reach speeds of 80 km/h (50 mph).
The jaguar is a good swimmer and eats fish, turtles and caimans. With a top speed of 80 km/h (50 mph), it catches most of its prey on short distances.
The Caracas is a slightly smaller feline living in Africa and southwest Asia. The tufts of hair may enhance the Caracas's hearing, and with dampening fur on its paws it makes little noise when attacking its prey.
Caracas hunt birds, rodents, rabbits and even gazelles, and they can reach top speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph). Among the lion's prey are antelopes, gazelles, wildebeest and zebras, all of which are fast animals.
The lion can often match its prey in sense of speed, but they have comparably poor stamina. Some of the pronghorn's worst enemies are wolves, coyotes, bobcats and cougars.
However, none of them can catch a healthy and full grown pronghorn, which can run as fast as 85 km/h (53 mph). The reason why the pronghorn can run faster than all its enemies is, according to a theory, that once upon a time it was prey to the American cheetah, which became extinct around 10,000 years ago.
This is because we have not found any reliable source for how quickly the impala can run, but it is commonly known to be as fast as its relatives the true antelopes. The Impala lives in Africa and is one of many animal species referred to as antelopes.
The cheetah lives in Africa and parts of the Middle East and is the world's fastest animal on land when it comes to top speed. In 2012, the cheetah Sarah from the Cincinnati Zoo ran a 100-meter race in 5.95 s (to compare with Usain Bolt's world record of 9.58 s).
The ability to run really fast is thus something the cheetah has evolved in order to survive, just like all the other animals on this list. This may be due in part to many contributing factors including size, medical conditions, or the gait the horse is using.
Horses that run faster don't get caught, so faster horses are more common now than in the early stages. Nil means that horses that run faster than predators live longer to reproduce more and raise colts that can run faster.
“A horse's leg resembles a Pogo stick that uses energy stored in the muscles and tendons to propel the animal forwards and upwards,” says Alan Wilson of the Royal Veterinary College in the UK. Some 80 percent of modern thoroughbred racehorses have in their pedigree the undefeated 18th Century horse Eclipse, Wilson's team says.
Over an extended distance the horse can outrun the cheetah. But nothing surpasses this cat in short sprints: it can accelerate from 0 to 45 mph (0 to 72 kph) in 2 seconds.
You get the answer, lion can kill the horse with ease. A dung beetle is not only the world’s strongest insect but also the strongest animal on the planet compared to body weight.
Rhinoceros Beetles can lift something 850 times their own weight. AFP Mosquitoes are estimated to kill about 725,000 people every year.
Hunter Reptile Rescue The Inland Taiwan snake is the world’s most venomous, but not deadliest. However, a tiger in a zoo will more likely kill a lion because if the tiger doesn’t back down, the inexperienced captive-bred lion is quite outclassed.
Tigers, which are well-known for their power and strength, are the largest members of the cat family. In order to catch their prey, tigers are capable of short bursts of high speed running.
Zebra can be found in savannas, grasslands, thorny scrub lands, woodlands, hills and mountains of Africa. Produced offspring, also known as horses, cobras and zones, are always sterile.
Zebra and horse share many common features, but they can be easily differentiated by: Each zebra has unique arrangement of black and white stripes which provide excellent camouflage in the tall grass.
Morphology of Ears, Tail, Mane, Legs and Hooves Horse has long legs (much longer than the upper part of the body) while zebra has short legs, that are roughly equal in size with the upper part of body.
Even though it is slower, zebra can easily escape from the predators by running in a zigzag manner. Domestication of horses started 4000 years BC in the South-East Europe.
Unlike horses, zebras are unpredictable, not-willing to cooperate with people and ready to bite and kick in self-defense. Besides that, horse whinnies while zebra produces high-pitched, barking sound to alert other members of the herd about potential danger.
There are approximately 300 Sumatran tigers (Panther Tigris Sumatra) existing in the wild. • They are generally very shy and seek to avoid people.• They hunt wild boar and deer species, however will take other prey opportunistically.• They are the smallest of the tiger subspecies, weighing up to 140 kg.• Bu kit Tigapuluh, Prince Se blat and the Lesser ecosystems are the three global priority areas for tiger conservation.
The essentially solitary nature of tigers is reinforced by scent marks left throughout their territories to indicate presence and occupancy of the area. This scent marking is a passive form of defense, although fights do occur.
The scent marks include urine sprayed on bushes and trees, feces and urine left in prominent places, scratch marks on trees, and scrapes made by raking backwards with the hind feet. The male begins by grasping the loose skin of the female's nape in his jaws.
Populations last only 10 to 30 seconds, after which the female roars loudly, turns over on her back and lashes out at the straddling male with her paws, who has to leap clear to avoid injury. Cubs are typically born in a secluded area central to the female’s home range.
Cubs are born blind and depend exclusively upon their mother for nourishment for the next five or six months. When the cubs are about six months old, they accompany their mother on her hunting expeditions, so they can feed directly on the kill.
Male cubs grow faster than their female siblings and by one year of age are noticeably larger and more independent, sometimes spending the day away from the mother. By 16 months of age, tigers have fully developed canines, but they are not very efficient at killing prey.
The young male tiger faces his most challenging time when he leaves his mother and seeks to find his own territory. Tigers eat almost anything that moves, but in general, their most favored prey are medium-sized deer and wild boar.
It may eat 20 kg to 30 kg at a stretch, feeding intermittently for several days on large carcasses until it is consumed. Tigers, like all predators, are not successful in every hunt, missing their prey more often than they catch it.
