Man can move across the surface of the earth much faster than any other mammal . . . but not on his own two legs! Even the fastest runner of all time would rank as a pretty slow-moving creature compared with certain animals. In a short dash, man has been known to travel at a speed of 22 to 25 miles sn hour. For a short dash, even an elephant or a rhinoceros can do about 25 miles an hour. A racehorse, which we consider to be pretty swift, can go at about 40 or 50 miles an hour. The fastest a greyhound can go is about 35 miles an hour.
If we want to measure the real speed of motion of a mammal, we have to go to such creatures as the antelope and the gazelle. These animals can do between 60 and 65 miles for a lash of a mile or so. The speed champion of the entire kingdom, however, is the cheetah or hunting leopard. These animals have been timed at a speed of 70 miles an hour! Of course, they can keep this up for only about a mile, after which they drop doom to a slower speed.

Which animal is the smartest on earth? For that matter, what is the world’s smartest animal? We’ve humans, so we’re the smartest animal on earth. You may not think so, but who are you to argue? But are we really the smartest? There are others who might take issue with that assessment: crows, dolphins, magpies, gorillas, chimpanzees, elephants, parrots, and even pigeons.
