Which is faster the greyhound or the Italian greyhound?

The answer to which is faster, a Greyhound or an Italian Greyhound, that the Greyhound would win that race--due hitting its stride at about 40mph, and the Italian Greyhound hitting a top speed of 25mph.Some sites state that the IG--Italian Greyhound can do 45mph (72.4kph, or 20m/s), and that the Greyhound reaches 40mph. [I found these numbers on Wikipedia, under 'Greyhound' and 'Italian Greyhound'--I believe that somebody has "padded" the top speed for the Iggy]Doing further research, the numbers are that a Greyhound runs at 37 - 45 mph (16.5m/s or 59.5kph). I also find that the top speed of an Italian Greyhound is 25mph (40.2kph, or 11.2m/s)My Italian Greyhound can do 100 yards from a standing start at an average speed of 31 mph, so the 25 mph is definitely not right. More than likely their average top speed would be 28-35 mph, depending on size...

Is a greyhound the second fastest land animal?

The greyhound is the fastest dog - with a top speed around 46 mph, but there are several mammals faster than it. Of course the cheetah is considered the fastest - with a top speed around 68 mph (and as much as 75 mph for very short distances), but it can only sustain it's high speed for a short time so at longer distances a greyhound could actually catch up and pass one in a hypothetical race. Other animals that are faster than a greyhound include: Hare - top speed ~50 mph Blackbuck antelope - top speed ~50 mph Lion - top speed ~50 mph Wildebeest - top speed ~50 mph Springbok antelope - top speed ~55 mph Pronghorn - top speed ~55 mph Ostrich - top speed ~60 mph
