Trap-jaw ant2


Her jaws are the fastest moving predatory appendages in the animal kingdom, closing in a mere 130 microseconds. The peak force of their closing can reach 300 times the body weight of the ant, with an acceleration of 100,000 times that of earth’s gravity.

She has been observed to use the force of these jaws to literally repel hostile targets and even to catapult herself to safety when the odds are stacked against her.

Note: These ants are still in development.
