The dragonfly is the planet’s most lethal hunters

Think of the deadly predators, your mind might emerge powerful shark or a ferocious lion. But scientists point out, in terms of capturing prey, dragonflies are the most successful predators in nature.

But scientists point out, in terms of capturing prey, dragonflies are the most successful predators in nature.

Scientists tiny reflective markers mounted dragonfly body, and shoot them in slow motion, measuring flight dragonfly’s body and head position. Dragonfly’s body and head movement to be independent, which is responsible for locking the object, but its body is responsible to take it to the best position to facilitate the attack. Dragonfly has been able to become so efficient hunters, the reason is that once it is determined to hunt object, you’ll always make prey remains within its sight, and constantly adjust the flight path, and can predict the movements of the object before taking action.

This winged insect prey capture success rate of over 95% of the target, which is twice as great white shark, is four times the lion king of the jungle.

Virginia Howard – Hughes Medical Institute scientists call this insect prediction (about the movement of their movement and the target object) in order to keep pace with those ballerina used to predict comparable with their peers.
