Marlin

  • Speed: 80kph (50mph)

The marlin is a fish from the family Istiophoridae and one of the fastest marine swimmers in the world. This species of fish is considered by researchers to be one of the largest, fastest and most beautiful fish out there. Females are generally larger than males. 

Their diet consists of mackerel, tuna and squid. Marlins are popular sporting fish in tropical areas and their meat is considered a delicacy in Japan. They are not yet endangered, but animal experts say that they are more likely to become endangered in the near future because they are unsustainably fished in some areas.

Pronghorn Antelope

  • Speed: 98kph (60mph)

The pronghorn is known as North America’s fastest land mammal. The breeding season of Pronghorns is in mid September, and females give birth to one or two fawns after a gestation period of 235 days.

Even though they are really good at running, it seems that pronghorns can’t jump, but climb instead. These interesting creatures are herbivores and can eat some plants that are normally toxic to certain domestic animals. In addition, their eyes are super large, which means that they can see 320 degrees around.
