World’s Fastest Mammal : No, You’re Not It

Covering 100 meters in 6.13 seconds, Sarah the cheetah set a new speed record for all land mammals on the 9th September 2008 in Cincinnati, America. Running on a specially designed 100-meter course at Cincinnati Zoo’s Regional Cheetah Breeding Facility at Mast Farm, Sarah eclipsed the previous record time of 6.19 seconds. Sarah, who is now officially the world’s fastest land animal, was so quick that she actually caught up with the lure that was encouraging her to hit such high speeds.
