Top Speed

A replica of the yellow fin tuna is carried around during one of the focal presentations of last year's Tuna Festival street dance. The Tuna Festival is an annual event held in General Santos City in the island of Mindanao, Philippines, to celebrate the city's charter anniversary. This year's festivities - the 2011 Tuna Festival - run from August 27 to September 5.

Real live tunas have been clocked at a top speed of 80 kilometers per hour while swimming the open ocean.
