"This is really by far and away the fastest recorded animal limb movement"

Beware the bite of the trap-jaw ant. They can "bite with a force of over 300 times their own bodyweight."

God made some amazing creatures, no?

Speaking of which, did I share with you that this winged creature recently held court in my backyard?


  1. Looks like a beautiful "winged creature". What is it? Is this your current back yard or your new back yard?

  2. My guess is it's some type of hawk. The picture is of the backyard fence at my rented house.

  3. Bullseye, it's a hawk with a stripped tail. We had three of them hangin' out in our backyard for 4 months. It was very cool watching them daily.
