Q:

How fast can a wild turkey run?

A:

A wild turkey can run up to 25 miles per hour and can fly up to 55 miles per hour. They are very mobile birds and use their speed to escape from predators and catch insects and small reptiles for food.

Wild turkeys survive best in habitats with both open and covered spaces. They forage for food in forest clearings and also use open spaces for mating. They rely on covered forested areas, however, for hiding from predators and roosting at night. Turkeys are native to North America and can be found in most areas of the United States, as of 2014.
