There are many super fast animals on the planet. Everybody understands the cheetah, which runs at sixty miles an hour only for a short time, but what about other creatures with rate? I know a couple that are quicker than any on earth. It is a bird and a bug and like the cheetah, these two have problems with their speed also. The fastest bird appears to be the peregrine falcon. It goes around two hundred miles a hour by power diving but never stops until it hits something it aims like prey. In the world wars, the Nazis trained and employed peregrine falcons to hunt down and kill carrier pigeons. So far, some of the pigeons succeeded in bringing messages back and avoiding falcons that is one of the reasons why the Nazis lost. He trains it to fly around with such speed they can scare away geese preventing airplane wrecks.

The bug I am spoke about in the first paragraph, despite its size, is the fastest in the world and it is known as the tiger beetle. Whether this beetle is the size of a human, it can reach speeds up to three hundred miles an hour and it would take a drag racer to catch up with it. The problem it has with its speed is its eyes. In easy words, it literally runs blind.
