Holy Cow, man. Turns out this little dude may be the fastest creature alive. Take that, cheetahs and falcons. Yep, a new study from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, shows that the Brazilian Free-Tailed bat can achieve flight speeds faster than those previously documented for any bat or bird. They are achieving short bursts of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Listen, I’m no scientist but that seems pretty speedy. Anyhoo, Brazilian Free-Tailed bat.
