Can a squirrel survive a 200 ft drop?

Asked by Gloria Rodríguez

This constant velocity is special for any falling body, and is known as its terminal velocity. … Terminal velocity is the fastest that an object will ever fall, no matter what height it is dropped from. Squirrels (unlike most other mammals) can survive impacts at their terminal velocity.
