Some may say that this bird tastes just like chicken, but 45 million years of evolution separate the #turkey from its cousin, the chicken. If you ever see one in the wild, try not to pick a fight. Turkeys can run at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour and fly as fast as 55 miles per hour. While they are related to the Tyrannosaurus Rex, turkeys do not have teeth. Instead, they swallow small stones which sit in a part of their stomach called the gizzard, and these stones aid in digestion! What a cool North America native bird!
