Animal Olympics – 100m ‘And the winner is…………’

 

The brown hare is the fastest British land mammal over short distances and could have trashed Usain Bolt’s world record by 4 seconds in a 100m sprint race. Unfortunately Mr Hare would probably be disqualified for lane infringements as hare physiology has evolved for rapid side to side movements in order to shake off pursuing predators!
