more importantly, since when did either of them take falling damage!?

and scientifically, shouldn't hedgehogs have a non-terminal velocity when falling?

You're talking about physics when there is a talking hedgehog that can run faster than anything.

scientifically tails isn't a hedgehog

Everything has a terminal velocity... Terminal velocity is just the downwards velocity an object must reach at which the downwards directed force of gravity is entirely counteracted by the upwards directed force of friction due to air resistance.

mg + .5p(v^2)CA = 0

Where m is the mass, p is the air density, v is the velocity, C is the drag coefficient, and A is the cross sectional area of the falling object...

Physics n' **** .

dammit Funnyjunk, why do you insist of making me feel stupid

No one cares, that's simple physics quit trying to act smart.

He pro'ly meant "non-lethal terminal velocity"

I'm pretty sure that any mammal dropped out of a plane will reach a lethal terminal velocity.

dude, cats are actually able to survive drops better from higher heights.

Who collected all this data? D=

SCIENCE!

Nah, at some point you reach a maximum speed, which is different for every animal and not lethal for all of them

Ok, I've just spent the last half hour looking this up, and you're right. A few animals (including mice and cats) can survive falls at terminal velocities! Dunno about hedgehogs though.

.... So I could throw a cat out of a plane and he would be fine sans parachute?

Theoretically, yes. I don't think anyone's ever tested it though...
