Geococcyx californiaus - the Road Runner is a terrestrial bird, but capable of flight especially when attacked by coyotes. It is immortalized in American cartoons with Wile E. Coyote. The cartoon character only says two words: "beep-beep".

The Road Runner measures up to 24 inches from tail to beak. Has zygodactyl feet - two toes in front two in back, and capable of speeds up to 15 miles per hour.

They are omnivores, eating insects and small insects including rattlesnakes. They live in the U.S. southwest deserts.
