The animal world is fast ant. Yes, you read that b & # 39; correct way.
- The Dracula area set a new record for fast movement of animals in the world
- They carry their mandibli together to amplify jaws
- The researchers used an incredibly fast camera to capture their movement
According to a study by the University & # 39; Illinois, behavior & # 39; Dracula, also known as Mystrium camillae, you & # 39; & # 39 cut; xedaqha 5,000 times faster than the human eye in the eyes & # 39; & # 39 tons; 320 kilometers per hour, making it the.
Can be found in Australia, tropical Africa and Southeast Asia.
The researchers say that the small rib of the breast creature & # 39; gives its mandibijiet by pressing the edges together, the tgħabbihom spring b & # 39; internal estressi to release when completing the slides on -naħa the other – like a human finger snap.
"These areas are fascinating because of their mandibli not unusual", said animal biology and professor of entomology Andrew Suarez, who helped conduct the study.
"Even among ants that amplify the power of their jaws, the Dracula ants are unique. Instead of using three different parts for spring break, and latch lever, three are united in mandib.
"The ants use this motion to look for other arthropods, x & # 39; likely jinstordawhom, jinfirxuhom against the tunnel wall or pushing & # 39; away. The prey is then transported to the nest, where she passed the mining larvae. "
Fredrick J. Larabee, Postdoctoral researcher at the National Museum & # 39; Natural History Smithsonian, conducted the study.
"Scientists have described many different mechanisms & # 39; spring load in the formulas, but nobody knew the relative speed & # 39; each of these mechanisms," he said.
"We use incredibly fast cameras to see the whole movement. We used also technology & # 39; ray image X to be able to & # 39; see their anatomy in three dimensions, to better understand how the movement . "
The team also ran simulations of mandibli snaps computer & # 39; & # 39 different Kaste of; Dracula ants to test how the shape and structural characteristics of the mandibi affected the health of their snap.
"Our main findings are that snap Jaws are the fastest mouth mouth pushed by the spring, and the rapid movement of animals currently known," said Mr. Larabee.
"By comparing the jaw form & # 39; ants jwaqqgħuha b & # 39; temperatures, we learned that started small changes in shape for the jaw evolve new function – acting as a spring."
