Cheetah vs Sailfish

cheetah vs sailfish

Did You Know?

The sailfish (the fastest fish, 68 mph) is speedier in the water than the cheetah (the fastest land animal, 62 mph) is on land.

    I don't have photoshop but...

    Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. Mach 3.3 or 2178mph or 3504km/h :) I think the only thing faster is space shuttles and the like :P

    (I know it's not an animal but still :P)

    that is now my aspiration to one day own one of those.

    Yeah I wouldn't mind having one either. Wikipedia has a list of where a lot of them are :P I hope you have lots of £millions to spare :P

    Bitch please,


    (click on it, it is a gif)

    right under 3x10^8 meters per second in a vacuum.

    Oh yeah? Well how fast does it move in a black hole?!?!
    - drakengard85 September 26, 2011, 11:50 am
    How fast would the cheetah, meteor, or the sailfish move in the black hole?
    - defmid26 September 26, 2011, 1:26 pm
    about the same speed.

    The cheetah is the fastest land animal (62mph)
    The sailfish is the fastest swimmer (68mph)
    The spine-tailed swift is the fastest bird (106mph)

    The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest bird, and in fact the fastest animal on the planet, when in its hunting dive, the stoop, in which it soars to a great height, then dives steeply at speeds of over 200 mph. However, it does not make the top ten when travelling in level flight.

    so that means the cheetah travels at 62 miles an hour every where it goes? and the sail fish swims at 68 miles an hour when it swims at all times? if your going based on top speed the peregrine wins despite it being at a dive. to them that is the sprint just like a cheetah sprints to 62 and the sailfish can hit 68 when it wants.

    he is basing his information on the speed they generate under their own force, a dive uses gravity :D
    - destroyer124 September 25, 2011, 7:43 am
    they may make that speed by their own force but the bird achieves the speed by natural adaptations to the environment which allows it to reach that speed. it is a controlled dive that no other animal on the planet could achieve naturally or with as much precision. at least thats how i look at it :)
    - 24paperwings September 25, 2011, 7:46 am
    well then im sure that if i push the fish out of an airplane at the same height that the bird dives it will gain some major speed too... before exploding into billions of bits on impact XD lol
    - destroyer124 September 25, 2011, 7:48 am
    "in level flight" spine-tailed swift is the fastest bird :)

    peregrine falcon doesn't found normally at level that's why dives at speed of over 200 mph
    - Omais September 25, 2011, 7:49 am
    exactly my point though it will gain some speed but it still wont reach the same level. plus the falcon would live through the flight without a problem. it could probably give the fish a head start and catch it before it hit the ground xD
    - 24paperwings September 25, 2011, 7:51 am
    fair enough but the falcon still kicks the swallows ass

    - Omais September 25, 2011, 7:55 am
    @24paperwings, idk the fish weights more plus its super aerodynamic too, i say we test this theory on which gets more speed :D
    - destroyer124 September 25, 2011, 7:56 am
    I like it! though i don't know how cooperative the falcon will be the fish on the other hand wont have much choice xD oh and you don't need to put the @24paperwings just hitting the reply lets me know you're talking to me.
    - 24paperwings September 25, 2011, 7:58 am
    lol yea we would need to train it, and well Omais commented in-between so i was directing the message to avoid confusion :D

    If Chuck Norris punched them they would all fly faster than the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. :)

    Maybe but has Chuck Norris punched them? Nopeeee :P

    humans are the fastest creatures on land, sea, and air according to physics of course.

    how do you figure?
    - bufus101 September 25, 2011, 6:08 pm
    cause if we shoot them they dont go fast anymore :)
    - MIKYTEY September 25, 2011, 6:27 pm
    It's the laws basic physics,if you are in your car and going 75 miles an hours then you yourself are going that fast as well. Which is why if you come to a sudden stop and aren't wearing your seat belt you fly through the windshield, your body isn't secured to the object in motion and thus doesn't stop when the vehicle stops. This is the same with boats and planes ergo humans are the fastest creatures on land, sea, and air.
    - triclebickle September 25, 2011, 6:42 pm
    oh we can go the fastest due to our man made stuff. if you go from pure biological parts we get blown away
    - bufus101 September 26, 2011, 1:48 am
    that why i said physics
