Laser-sharp eyes guide a jabbing beak. Fast, powerful legs and a rudderlike tail and wings keep the bird bobbing and weaving.
Powerful coils, a lightning-fast strike, and venomous fangs force a fight to the finish.
The roadrunner wins. It grabs the rattler’s upper jaw in its beak and slams the head against the ground until the snake is dead.
