Falcons

Quick: What’s the world’s fastest animal?

Sailfish?

Some sort of jungle cat? Cheetah please.

Answer: The Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds up to 200 mph on aggressive swoops.

Cheetah please! I got the real speed!

Bonus Falcon Question:

What is the greatest falconry moment of all time?

A: I can’t speak for real falconry, so let’s just say the episode of King of the Hill, where Dale Gribble gets a falcon and trains it to attack Bill. Sh Sh Sha!

I also seem to remember a video by The Darkness featuring a bit of falconry, which if true, would also be an elite falcon moment.
