    It’s the pronghorn antelope (Antilocapra americana). It’s maximum speed is hard to measure and has been cited as between 70 kph (44 mph) and 98 kph (61 mph). It is considered the fastest animal in the world after the cheetah, and is capable of maintaining high speeds for a longer period of time than this famous big cat.
