With 113 kilometers per hour, the cheetah may be the fastest animal on land but compared to the peregrine, at more than 150 kilometers per hour, it is a turtle. Peregrines hunt at dusk. In the city, they also hunt at night, making use of the street lights. They are true acrobats, particularly during their courtship. They spiral through the air, while throwing food to the female. The pairs mate for life. Their nest is no more than a scraped out hollow in the ground, preferably on rocks or buildings.
