Sure can.

Fastest animal on land is the Cheetah, it can reach running speed of 75mph (120 km/h).




Fastest animal in the air that can reach the fastest speed by flapping its wings while flying in a straight line, is White-Throated Needletail. It can fly at top speed of 105mph (169 km/h).




Fastest animal in air and the fastest animal on Earth is by far the Peregrine Falcon. It can reach the speed of 200mph (321 km/h) while diving down from the heights to catch its flying pray.




Fastest water animal is the Sailfish, thanks to its hydrodynamic shape and strong body Sailfish can reach the swimming speed of 70mph (112 km/h).
