Top 10 Fastest Animals & Birds in World

God created many amazing things, animals being one of his creations are very spell bounding, animals are the sculpture which reflects the greatness of God. He did not create one animal but so many and each animal is an example of his enormity, every single animal possess some unique quality with in itself, for instance some animals have the ability to run very fast, their pace is so fast that a human would never be able to compete with it. There are few animals whose speed is multiple times of what a human has, this is something which reflects the amplitude and prodigiousness of our creator. There are some animals which run so fast that they actually become able of walking or running on water, such animals are called as balilisles.

The thing is why few animals are capable of running so fast while the others are not, this difference dwells on the basis of the frequency at which the heart beats, and heartbeat is the thing which controls the speed. The animals which can run very fast have a very high rate of heart beat and this high rate corresponds with the rate of oxygen intake. In a nut shell if a human or any other living being starts inhaling oxygen at the same rate as those animal they may become able to maintain the same fast pace. The respiratory rate is not the only thing but the manufacture of body also plays a vital role. This was however only one story and there are plenty of similar cases, such as there are few animals who can have this amazing hearing capabilities, they can hear the voice of such low frequency that we humans would never become able to feel the waves. Some animals also have very sharp eye sight and some can go on for days and days without food and water.

All the breathing taking creations are here in this world, but why? The answer is very simple, so we may comprehend the existence and greatness of God. There are many things God blessed us with but there are many things which did not bless us with, to show us that we are still inferior, although God put us (human) above all his creations but there are few criteria in which we lag, such as there is only a certain limit at which we can run where as God created some animals which can run at amazing pace, the top 10 fastest animals in world are:
