    A Chaparral is a ground-dwelling bird known for incredible speed.  The Chaparral is also referred to as a roadrunner and has been clocked at speeds of over 20 miles per hour. It is so fast and fierce that it is one of the only known predators of the rattlesnake.  Additionally, the Chaparral is mighty enough to weather the desert environment of both the United States and Mexico.
