Life Spans of the Animal Kingdom [Infographic]
If you have a small dog, you know much you love the little stinker. But, how much are you spending to meet its needs? A small dog isnt the most expensive pet in the world, but it certainly will cost you money. Every year, you can expect to spend $400. During the first year, you can expect to spend $780. With the long life expectancy of a small dog, an average of 14 years, that little dog adds up big- to the tune of $5,980.
The Cheetah has long been recognized as the fastest land animal in the world reaching speeds upwards of 70mph. Pronghorn antelopes, another animal on the savanna, can reach speeds of up to 60 mph. This animal can sustain these speeds much longer than a cheetah.
To determine the fastest animal in the world one has to consider the nature of the race that you are going to ask them run. Once we get speed on land, however, the most important consideration is going to be the distance over which the race is run.
