There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Is it correct to say Peregrine Falcon is fastest species on earth?

According the researcher, Peregrine Falcon is fastest of all species, BUT is it correct? Technically she gain this top speed 320 KM/hr when she fall free not by just flying straight, so is it correct to say that a diving bird (or free falling under gravity) can be considered the fastest species with its own ability ?

What if we consider only straight run/fly/swim ? Which one will top it ?

@sanjay :

About #1: If my memory is good, efficient:

On earth the fastest animal is the cheetah ( around 110 kmph).

By flying, I learnt the frigate bird. But it doesn't seem it is true. Thus OK as concerns the peregrine falcon (242mph). Then would come the golden eagle (200mph).

In the water the swordfish, around 100 km per hour.
