Stasis - Endurance: possibly humans? Ive heard we are one of the best long distance runners in the animal kingdom.
True, I have heard that as well.

And if you include tool use (not externally powered), I have heard that there is no more efficient method of locomotion across level ground in the animal kingdom than a person riding a bicycle.

Humans have the most endurance.  IIRC, no other animal even comes close.

I think a wolf, husky or malamute would be superior here. Wolves run for hours

For those saying crocodiles for bite force...are you ruling out Sperm Whales? Surely they have a stronger bite force than a croc. What about an Orca?

The only ones which are surely definites are Blue Whale for strength and Peregrine Falcon for speed. If aquatic animals count, then the Swordfish is a definite for swimming.

Right, because humans can't run for hours.

Also, I don't think the falcon or any birds should count for the speed category because they are using gravity and gliding half the time.

Endurance - Some sort of migrating whale. I believe they can maintain 15 knots for days at a time and get bursts of around 25-30 knots.

D0N Johnson - I really enjoy trolling the UG/OG message boords.  It is satisfying to spend my time making absurd or inflammatory statements in hopes that it upsets other people.  I dont mind the fact that I am a complete loser in real life, because on MMA.TV I am well known and hated by everyone.

I also like to suck dick too.
Damn D0N theres an anonymous confession thread for this stuff.

A flea can actually jump closer to 200% it's own height, but they are a bug, so they don't count here.

Never said they couldn't, but I think a wolf, or endurance bred dog, such as a Husky or Malamute can keep a higher pace for a longer period of time than a human can.

This would make for an interesting TV Show/Competition..

If an olympic sprinter averages about 25 mph for max speed, that means they'd have to keep a steady speed of 7.5 mph (To make it 30% of their max speed)

And a wolfs max speed being around 35-40 mph, would have to keep a pace of about 10.5-12 mph. I think it would be much easier for the wolf...
