What's the fastest speed an elephant can run?

2 Answers

In general, an elephant's top speed is around 25 mph (40 kph). This top speed would be used on rare occasions, such as when they are scared or angry. Elephants typically move at a slower running speed of around 12 to 20 mph (19 to 32 kph) depending on the species, temperate and other factors.

Normally, elephants tend to stick with a steady walking speed of about 4 mph (6 kph) under normally.

when scared, an elephant can run 25 mph. but usually they walk 4 mph.
