Bird Power - Photograph by Watson Pickrell, circa 1906
This article says: Forget about horsepower. Ostriches pulled a sulky around a Los Angeles ostrich farm in the early 1900s. Although too heavy to fly, these strong-legged birds can reach speeds of 40 miles an hour (70 kilometers an hour) sprinting and 30 miles an hour (50 kilometers an hour) over longer distances."

A MYSTERY ANIMAL:
What is this? or is this Photoshop?

UPDATE: We got this input - "I strongly suspect that the mystery animal on this page is a newborn capybara. I've never seen a naked newborn before, but the shape of the head is unmistakable - the 3 toes, the size, the fur color, and the ear shape and placement also correspond to the capybara."

Could be wrong, but it looks like a baby capybara to me.

I think it's a "naked" guinea pig. See here: http://www.cavyconcepts.com/

I think it's a hairless guinea pig. We used to have some as pets. I used to say they looked more like little capybaras than guinea pigs.

I'm also going to go with the hairless guinea pig.

Because "hippopotamouse" is so perfect that it automatically replaces whatever name was used before.

I am 99% certain that the mystery animal is a capybara. The shape of the head is a dead give away.

It is actually a hairless breed of guinea pig called a "Skinny Guinea" they are born with fur and lose it as they get older.

Its a hairless guinea pig. It looks like a capybara because guinea pigs are related to capybara. I have never herd of a skinny guinea pig though.
