PS: Did you know that Draco Lizard is the winged creature that’s best at hovering? It lives in the forest’s canopy because the ground has too many predators. I think I’d learn to hover too!

  1. This would be a wonderful addition in my 5th grade science lab. Especially when we conduct our airplane lab! The peregrine falcon would probably win.

  2. I think the white-throated needle tail would win. I’m mostly guessing that one because I’ve never heard of it.

  3. My guess is the peregrine falcon. Now I will have to go research the other two to see if I’m right or not.
