It depends on which animal you are talking about. Since animals in general cannot scratch all over their bodies as and when they move around, they are subject and exposed to the elements. Seeds for instance can therefore be blown onto their bodies by the wind and captured by the hairs or fur on their bodies as they move.
Animals move at a huge range of speed, from the very slow animals like sloths, chameleons ans possums up to the other extreme of speed, where cheetahs rule on land and falcons rule in the air. -In between are all the other animals like horses, dogs, zebras, antelopes, deer and other 'medium speed' animals.
