The speed which an animal lives is determined by measuring the rate at which it uses oxygen. A chicken, for example, uses one-half cubic centimeter of oxygen every hour for each gram it weighs. The tiny shrew-mouse uses four cubic centimeters of oxygen every hour for each gram it weighs, Because it uses oxygen eight times as fast, it is said that the shrew-mouse is living eight times as fast as the chicken. The smallest of the warm-blooede animals, the humming bird, lives a hundred times as fast as an elephant. There is a limit to how small a warm-blooded animal can be.
