What living creature can hit speeds of 300 Kilometer/Hour (km/h) =. 186.41136 Mile/Hour (mph)?
I'll guess a Peregrine falcon?!
I've done that speed several times. Mostly in a passenger jet or C-141.
Pretty sure it's a small predatory bird,,,
Redtail hawk maybe?
Peregrine Falcon in a dive.
Golden Eagle, Gyrfalcon and a couple of others are faster in level flight.
That would be my guess, as well.
Some ocean creatures top out around ~50mph or so. And I think the Cheetah can hit 70mph for shorter sprints. But, nearly 200mph ... gotta be one of the falcons.
A Falcon in a dive! Truly and amazing bird!
No idea how fast an eagle goes during power dive>
A cat strapped into a high end drone.
Frog in a blender???
Is it that shrimp that whacks it’s prey with its front arms? Used to be into aquariums and heard those have to be kept in acrylic tanks cause they’ll bust glass. The shrimp itself won’t go that fast but it’s attack is stupid quick.
Raccoon hit with a load of 00 Buckshot. Well, parts of it went that fast.
Austin- Mantis Shrimp
In about twenty seconds, it'd be 100 stray pieces plus one angry cat, flying through the air. Which, if physics is any guide, would be ... um ... What height are we speaking of? What would be the terminal velocity of a cat from, say, 3000ft, and would it land on its feet? (And did Mr. Cat take lessons from the flying squirrel, last autumn.)
Things that make you go "Hmmm."
Was it an unladen African cat, or European?
Used to hear the snap, crackle, pop of the alpheus heterochaelis shrimp against the hull at night in southern waters.
Tiny things, from micro sized to about 1", they'd pop all night long by the millions. Even through 1" of fiberglass, it was like being a bowl of rice crispies.
The pop is actually the air bubbles exploding, not the snap of the claw.
Oh, so it's airspeed velocity we're speaking of, yeah?
The big question, then, has got to be: Was it made of wood? And, if so, then ...
Sniper03, whatever you do, don't provide the answer: the comments are far too precious to end!
I just hope it has good breaks.
Well, if African, it's a question. If European, it's Brembo of course. If it were American, it'd be Bendix ... and defunct.
That'd determine whether it would be a dictatorship, an autonomous collective, or an anarcho-syndicalist commune. But, then it'd be politics and we're in the wrong forum for that. Don't even get me started on "watery tarts" delivering authority for supreme executive power via some farcical aquatic ceremony ... As if the cats would tolerate that.
Not that that has anything to do with cats. Aerodynamically efficient ones or not.
