ExplorationFast as a speeding... human?What are some other animals you know about which you think might be really fast? Some of the other really fast land animals include gazelles, lions, antelopes, and wildebeests.Wondering where humans fit in on the list? The average fit, adult human’s top running speed is about 15 miles per hour, and the fastest professional runners can go at about 30 miles per hour. That means an animal like the cheetah can run more than twice as fast as the very fastest humans!!
