I think this is at least partially because animals don't suffer from over thinking.
If they decide they are going to do something they do it full on. Which is why pound per pound, animals seem so much stronger than humans. They don't hold back.
Unlike humans which think about things like watching the ground to make sure they don't step in hole, or how dinner last night is sitting a little awkwardly, or a myriad of other inconsequential things that result in mind and body getting out of sync.
