Wyoming Bison Squares Off Against Texas Long Horn In Race
I hate to wreck your week, or life for that matter, but your entire childhood was a LIE!
Looney Tunes showed the Roadrunner was far - far faster than the the coyote.
Well, sorry, but coyotes can out-pace roadrunners by quite a bit.
Coyotes clock up to 43 miles per hour, compared to the roadrunners at 20 miles per hour.
Some who read this article will lose sleep over this.
Okay, so let's take a bet.
Which one is faster? A Wyoming Bison or a Texas Long Horn?
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it's the battle of the big beasts from the most conservative states in the U.S.A.
It is said that the bison has a max speed of 35mph.
A Texas longhorn should have a max speed of 25mph.
Is this TRUE?
Let's watch the video and find out.
WAIT - is that longhorn rider wearing a bison coat? I think he is.
SPOILER ALERT, if you have not watched the video, the bison won.
We can see that the Texas longhorn does not carry as much bulk as the Wyoming bison.
So the longhorn takes an early lead because he can get started faster.
Then again, neither of these beasts can really start fast. It takes them a while. But once they get going it's hard to stop them.
It's like the supervillain Juggernaut from Marvel Comics. Once he gets running there is not much that can stop him.
But the Wyoming bison slowly catches up and finally overtakes the longhorn.
Both beasts are lumbering as they run. That's a lot of weight to carry.
The real problem here is stopping all of that weight at the end of the race.
