"Greater Roadrunner"
Greater Roadrunner:    The Greater Roadrunner, a ground-dwelling cuckoo, can reach speeds of 15-20 miles per hour as it holds its head and tail flat and parallel to the ground when running as it chases down snakes, scorpions, lizards, birds, and other small animals. The Greater Roadrunner is "greater", as compared to the smaller Roadrunner of Mexico.
