Lima is the capital of Peru and an urbanised city, so there are no wild animals that are common on the city streets. However, in Lima's zoos you can find animals that are known to be fast such as the cheetah, which is the fastest land animal in the world, and can reach speeds of up to 120 km/h in short races. There are also other animals that are fast such as the leopard, jaguar, tiger, wolf and puma, although their speed varies depending on the species and environmental conditions. In short, if you are looking to see fast animals in Lima, we recommend you visit the city's zoos.
