Cheetah Running - by Cincinnati Zoo. Cheetahs, the fastest land mammals in the world, are built for speed. They can reach running speeds of up to 70 mph, and they can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds — faster than most cars. A single bound can cover 22 feet, thanks to a flexible spine that lets their front legs extend extra far.
