The Greater Roadrunner, a member of the cuckoo family, is a formidable predator, catching snakes, lizards, rodents and small birds on the run. He can reach speeds of up to 15-20 miles per hour.
His antics, such as jumping straight up into the air to grab a passing insect, make him a popular cartoon figure. It is a surprise to find roadrunners really look and act like their film doubles.
