10: Maximum Speeds of Selected Animals All figures are in kilometers per hour. Some of the speeds given are only achieved for short stretches. The great differences in the data given in the literature on bird flying speeds are based on the fact that no mention is made whether the cited speeds were achieved with or without tailwinds. Data after Bauer et al. 1974, Bertelsmann 1979, Franz 1959, Grzimek 1970, Hanke et al. 11: Jumping Distances of Selected Animals Listed in ascending order according to jump in relation to body length (BL).

5. 5: Relative Intestinal Length of Selected Animals Numbers indicate relation of intestinal length (IL) to body length (BL) (how many times longer the intestine is than the body). 4. Among the herbivores (long intestines) and carnivores (short intestines), respectively, the intestines of smaller animals are relatively longer than those of their larger counterparts. The sperm whale represents an exception to this pattern among whales, probably due to its feeding on octopus and squid. 6: Proportion of the Total Volume of the Intestinal Tract Made Up by Stomach, Small Intestine, and Appendix in Selected Mammals Figures represent percentages (%) of total volume.
