Next time you’re running through the airport terminal trying to catch your next flight, think of how much faster you’d be if you could swim through the crowds like a killer whale (max speed 34.5 mph). Or like Usain Bolt of Jamaica (max speed 23 mph).
Or how about this one. If you were a Spittlebug you could jump vertically from airport terminal to airport terminal. Air-tram?! Who needs them.
Imagine if we compared our abilities to the animal kingdom. The results might surprise you!

Black Mamba Snake = 20 mph
