Animal of the day – 4/15/2011 – The Roadrunner

Roadrunner

The animal of the day is the Roadrunner. (Did you know: Despite what the cartoon would have you believe, roadrunner can fly, and frequently do so to escape predators!

They do however, prefer to stay on the ground, and can run up to 20 mph. However, they mainly run to hunt, not to escape Wil E. Coyotes.

Like many birds, roadrunners mate for life [as long as their mate doesn’t die].
