Adaptations Peregrine Falcon has feet with “claws” on them that are especially adapted to holding on to their prey.  The peregrine also has adapted its beak and muscles in the jaw. The beak has what is called a Tomial tooth which it uses to snap the spinal cord of the prey if it has not already died from the initial impact. The muscles in the Peregrine Falcon jaw are very strong and are also very adapted to snap the spinal cord of the prey, as well as to eat its food. During the dive, the pressure that is produced while travelling 200 mph could damage the lungs and therefore the Peregrine Falcon has developed small tubercles to guide the air so that it does not do harm to the lungs.
