ANIMAL FACTS - Raptors
Peregrine Falcons have the potential to reach speeds in excess of 400 kilometres per hour in a stoop or dive. This makes the Peregrine the fastest animal on the planet today.
Raptors are identified as Birds of Prey that capture their food using their feet. They have three distinguishing features:
- large talons (or claws) used for hunting
- very keen eye sight to target prey
