Horsepower

Chances are you’ve heard about horsepower. Just about every car commercial on tv mentions it!

Did You Know? The term horsepower was invented 200 years ago by an engineer.

Did You Know? A team of two Belgians can pull as much as 4,500 pounds (2,000 kg)

However! In the horse world the small but mighty Shetland Pony is possibly the strongest for its size.

So What Is Horsepower? To find out you can read part of our featureĀ Horses are Sensational from Issue 58.

Tests of Strength

Other animals are strong too! A flea can jump two hundred times its own body length. But the title of the “strongest animal on earth” usually goes to the critter than can lift or pull the most compared to its own weight. And the winner is… the Dung Bettle! The half-inch-long beettle can lift objects that are 1,141 times heavier than its body weight.
