Hi all,

It may not be the worlds most gruesome killer (seeing it doesn't actually
decapitate its prey with 'clenched fists' as previously reported). But at
speeds of up to 390 km/h, clearly the Peregrine Falcon reamins the fastest
animal and perhaps fastest organism on earth.
It is amazing how birds have come all this way as a result of adaptive
radiation from dinosaurs.
