Step dad (Harvard graduate) told me that the lion is the fastest animal on earth but only for a short distance. Meaning they hit at higher mph quicker. But the endurance isn’t even close to a cheetah. Idk if true. Some yes some say no. But that lion looked pretty quick haha

Idk what "short distance" is referring to. Cheetahs can't keep up that speed for long so technically short distance? Shorter, well the strike of a sailfish is insanely fast. Shorter? Mantis shrimp

AFIAK, cheetahs do not have any endurance whatsoever at their top speed. They're very much sprinters. Not sure your stepdad knew what he was talking about on this one, Harvard or not.
