The peregrine falcon is the fastest animal in the world.

While hunting, it can reach speeds of over 90 miles per hour but during its aerial displays it holds the all-time speed record of 242 miles per hour. So itís not surprising that this powerful bird has conquered the planet and can be found on the five continents. Though it is now the most widespread raptor in the world, this iconic animal became an endangered species in the 1960s because of the widespread use of the powerful pesticide, DDT. Worshipped, sculpted or trained for prestigious hunts, the power and beauty of this bird has always fascinated mankind.
