Which are the fastest animals relative to size?

This incredible infographic looks at the range in speed between different animals, from the record-breaking cheetah to the tiny house mouse.

The house mouse runs at around 8mph and although this may not feel fast to us, it’s all relative to body size. For the small size of the house mouse, it would feel more like 155mph to us, and the horse fly would fly at a whopping 3897mph!

The infographic shows the actual speed of each animal and also compares how it would feel for a 5’8″ human at the same speed.
