Trap jaw ant videos


Check out these hot videos of the worlds fastest animal part. The trap jaw ant of Central and South America can open its jaws to 180 degrees and then slam them shut at over 110mph. The jaws slam shut so quickly that the whole ant can be flung many times its length into the air.

Trap jaw video - remember this is slowed down about 1600 times.
