The Peregrine falcon: fastest animal in the world

We’ve all been told the cheetah is the fastest animal in the world, right? In truth, these cats have nothing on the Peregrine falcon, which is capable of reaching speeds of almost 250 miles per hour during its high-speed dive for prey, which is called a “stoop.”

This video, which comes straight from National Geographic’s official YouTube channel, follows a team of experts who go to great lengths (and very high altitudes) to officially clock a stooping falcon. In the process, they get some very cool video. Take a look and tell me what you think.
