Velocity meaning speed? Seems a very odd question if it is. :lol:
How big it is. How much of its legs are muscle. Surely this isnt the question???

There are many factors, internal and external.

You could write a book as an answer to this question. The limiting factors to an animal's velocity...
Well, internal: state of health, how fat the animal is, phisical condition, number of calories in it's diet, muscle mass specific to the species etc
External: gravity, rubbing against the air, weather conditions(rain, wind and so on) etc
Is this what you need?

I also agree with Chris4...this is a very weird question....velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object....Try to paraphrase your question...:)
