One bite from the rattlesnake could kill the roadrunner in no time at all, as this clip reminds us, yet this is no ordinary bird — but “the fastest draw in the West”.
The roadrunner’s amazing speed leaves the venomous snake no chance at all and the reptile is swiftly overcome — it is quite a sight to behold. And viewers are duly impressed with the bird’s skills. One commenter writes:
This thing is the closest we’ll come to seeing a real Velociraptor Mongoliensis (aka not the Jurassic Park ones). The stance it takes, the speed it moves at, the shape of the head… It all fits. Lovely little critter.
Another commenter observes:
