Faster than a speeding cheetah
Any parent will tell you that the fasted animal on land is actually the teenager ... when someone starts running a tap to wash dishes.
In addition to lightening speed the agile teenager also displays the sudden ability to open and close a front door without making a noise (a phenomenon all the more surprising seeing as normally they can only manage to close a door by making the whole house shake) and the equally unexpected skill of being able to come up with the most eloquent and inventive of excuses to ensure that they are somewhere else as soon as possible (even though ten minutes ago the best they could mange in reply to your questions was an indistint grunt).
Camouflage is another interesting aspect in the life of the teenager. With a tendancy to flock together in large groups they attempt to confuse potential predators by dressing alike (preferably all in black with 'spikey' and 'studdy' silver coloured bits sticking out) thereby appearing to be much larger than they actually are.
... and dont get me started on mating rituals .
I think i had better go and wash my dishes!!!
