Screw it... I took it down to good ole in game testing... run away from an object for 5 seconds and write down the distance... I only did it 5 times to get an average distance... but the numbers were not so far off that it really makes a difference here... do it with both sprint turned on and sprint turned off. Apply a bit of math and BAM you know how fast you run!
5seconds distance (avg): 28.414 normal / 37.59 sprint
mps(meters per second): 5.6828 normal / 7.59 sprint
kph: 20.45808 normal / 27.324 sprint
mph: 12.7121 normal / 16.9783 sprint

So whats the difference between the two values? about 35%? yep... The discrepancy is likely an error on my imperfect system to get the speed, and thus would throw the correct value off. But we can say we "run" at 13mph, and "sprint" at 17mph... So a 110% mount is 27.3mph.

So again, why cant animals known to run well over that speed be viable for mounts? That's a verified two species straight from wookieepedia: Dewbacks and Tauntauns which are also the most WIDELY known animal mounts...

Yes, I put way too much effort to discredit an angry few people "if you put animal mounts in the game IMA quit!!!!"... but don't go making baseless claims just because you want to complain... again... the better argument (if all you want to do is complain) is to argue why do our mounts go so SLOW... because clearly 27.3 MPH is far slower than my Lhosan Thunderbolt can take me.

Why if they dont increase the mount speeds SO MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO QUIT THE GAME!!!!!!111!ONE

I've been hoping for animal mounts as well (I want a thranta), but I really hope some can be earned, not just bought with Cartel Coins, as I only use my monthly allotment and am largely unwilling to buy them. Also, I would not care, and would prefer, if at least some were comparable in speed to mechanical mounts. Who cares if it's "unrealistic." Star Wars is a Sci-fi/Fantasy universe. There are animals in it that can survive the vacuum of space. Why wouldn't some exist within that can keep up with a speeder.

Now, obviously I can't tell you anything concrete yet - mostly because there isn't anything concrete yet - but I can tell you that Hoth doesn't feel right without being able to ride a tauntaun.
please remember to add varactly

Any animal which is currently already in the game or their homeworld is already explorable I believe should be available not in the Cartel Market but either as a mission reward or purchasable from a vendor. If not then I believe they would be cosidered acceptable as a Cartel Market item.

Those which are already in-game or have their homeworld explorable:
*Bantha
*Dewback
*Eopie
*Rancor
*Reek
*Tauntaun
*Varactyl

Those which would be best suited as a Cartel Item:
*Blurrg
*Bordok
*Foonar
*Equss
*Kaadu
*Kashyyyk bantha
*Kybuck
*Jaboon
*Lava flea
*Maru
*Mogo
*Orray
*Rockhopper
*Tybis
*Vroom

then head to this thread and discuss, list and vote which you'd like to see and explore in the game:
