The correct answer to this question is No. Gazelles are not faster than cheetahs, for cheetahs are the fastest animals in the world. They are so fast that they can go from 0 to 60 mph in a matter of 3 seconds. These animals are sprinters, which allow them to obtain the high sprinting speed in a short time.

The reason for this is the build of their bodies. Cheetahs have small heads and long legs. These parts of their bodies are designed for aerodynamics. Their spine is another reason why they are so fast. Their spine is flexible, giving them the flexibility to run at high speeds.

No, a Gazelle is not faster than a Cheetah. Cheetah is the fastest animal in the world. Second to Cheetah is the Gazelle. Cheetahs are capable of accelerating up to 70mph in less than 3 seconds. No other animal can beat this feat. The fastest species of gazelle is Thomson’s gazelle. It has a max speed up 97 km/h in short bursts. Despite the high speed of gazelle, it is a popular prey animal for the cheetahs. Unlike the cheetahs, one feature that makes the gazelle stand out is their ability to endure. Most fast predators, including the cheetah, run at their highest speed for short sprints. If a gazelle is able to escape the initial attack, it can go with long-lasting speed.

What a lot of people may not realize is that the gazelle is considered to be the cheetah’s favorite prey. This can also move very fast, but when compared to the cheetah, the cheetah is still considered to be the fastest land animal that you can find right now. Since the cheetah eats the gazelle, it would need to make some changes to the way that it moves.

It would need to be even faster than the gazelle, or they would need to risk starvation. There are still instances when the gazelle would be able to outrun the cheetah, depending on the current condition of the two animals. For example, the gazelle might outrun the cheetah when it is in its top condition.

Gazelle’s come in at a close second in comparison to the Cheetah’s impeccable speed. Gazelle’s are a small, thin antelope that typically have curved horns and a sandy brown colored coat with white underneath. The Cheetah may either be black or spotted. The most common Cheetah is light golden brown with black spots. The Cheetah's favorite animal to prey on is the gazelle. Gazelle's are barely fast enough to run from the Cheetah.

A cheetah can run up to seventy miles per hour, and the gazelle can run about fifty miles per hour. The Cheetah is said to be the fastest land animal on the earth. Gazelle's run slower, but for more extended periods. Cheetahs, on the other hand, are skilled at taking longer strides. Cheetahs are known for speed, exactitude, and hunting skills.
