This Crazy-Ass Bird Can Dive As Fast As A Dang Bugatti

The dang peregrine falcon is faster diving for its prey than almost every normal production car on the road, and that’s pretty wild.

That’s right, folks. We’ve got to add a heckin’ bird up there with the likes of Lamborghini, Noble, Zonda, Koenigsegg, McLaren and Bugatti, because this peregrine falcon is a 200-plus mph killer.

The peregrine falcon’s stoop, or the shape it forms into while diving for its prey, is super aerodynamic, achieving top speeds above the double-century speed mark. Not only that, but they’re so freaking metal, they eat other birds.


Imagine a Bugatti that, like, formed into a perfectly drag-less and friction-less form and then tackled other cars off of the road at speeds over 200 mph and devoured them, and that’s the peregrine falcon. Dang.
