However, tiger is also tied up with liger as the second fastest carnivore animal in the world. A liger is also capable of running more than 80 kilometers per hour. Keeping this thing in mind that there is a lower number of population and lesser observations of ligers’ top speeds, a liger might be capable of running faster than 80 kilometers per hour as well. Liger has big body structure and researchers believe that liger has adopted its top speed from the tigers. Therefore, it can be the second fastest carnivore animal in the world as well.f-Share Tweet Linkedin Google+ Pinterest VK
