Fishes that are similar in shape like Swordfish can actually swim at very good speed. This is because the elongated pointed bill helps them to make their way into water. Swordfish can swim at a speed of 97 KMPH or 60 MPH.
15. Anna’s Hummingbird
Thank God Hummingbird made it to the list or else I would have thought that its ability to flap wings at the rate of 50 flap/sec accounted to nothing. Anna’s Hummingbird can fly at the speed of98.7 KMPH or 61 miles per second.
14. Sail Fish
Though they look like Marlin and Swordfish due to their elongated bill but Sailfish are actually a very different species. They got their name due to their ability to swim at peak speed of 109.19 KMPH or 67.85 MPH.
Here it is, the most advertised fastest animal – Cheetah. This big cat can out run any land animal with an amazing speed of 120.7 KMPH or 75 MPH. That is the peak speed of many normal cars. So next time when you are on a Jungle Safari, Make sure you do not enrage a Cheetah.
12. Grey-Headed Albatross
Like all Albatross, this large sea bird too is known for its unique and beautiful look. But its not just beauty, Grey-Headed Albatross can fly at a speed of 79 MPH or 126.9 KMPH.
Not to be confused with the famous house of Harry Potter. Gerfalcon is another sub species of Falcon that can fly at astonishing speeds. It has been recorded to fly at speed of 127 KMPH or 79 MPH.
10. Black Marlin Fish
This subspecies of Marlin fish is the fastest fish in the sea. It can swim underwater at an amazing speed of 128 KMPH or 79.5 MPH. Black Marlin Fish is very large and bony fish.
9. Red-Breasted Merganser
At first this duck gives impression of Daffy Duck from Looney Tunes. But make no mistake as this duck can easily outrun Cheetah in a race. It is a dive duck and can do both swimming and flying. He can fly at a speed of 129 KMPH or 80 MPH.
