Most importanly however, despite its size, the Peregrine can reach speeds up to 200 mph when hunting and diving for prey.

The moa were eleven species of flightless birds endemic to New Zealand ranging in size from about the height of a chicken, to the largest species which was twelve feet tall. Most, if not all, species of moa died out due to over-hunting by the Māori and habitat decline before European discovery and settlement.
