Besides being the fastest mammal in existence, the cheetah is also one of the top predators in the grasslands. Its enormous heart, liver, and lungs give the cheetah’s lightweight frame the capability for huge power and speed boosts as it hunts, allowing it to reach speeds up to almost sixty miles per hour (almost 97 km per hour). That’s… pretty fast.
