These are the world's fastest animals

So, for that matter, are many birds. Apart from human technology like catapults, elastic structures are rarely used in our corner of the animal kingdom. The trap-jaw ants have found an intriguing use for their powers of acceleration. Paradoxically, it might be precisely because reptiles and amphibians are sometimes slow and sluggish that they have become kings of acceleration. Patek's interest in super-fast acceleration began over a decade ago while she was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California in Berkeley. And what does the mantis shrimp do with its astonishingly quick weapons? But there is another class of speedy predator: one that channels all of its power into moving just one or a handful of specific body parts, while the rest of the animal remains virtually motionless. If you try to imagine a speedy predator, you might envision the muscular body of a cheetah at full sprint, or the aerodynamic pose of a peregrine falcon dive-bombing a pigeon. Fish can clearly outpace snails, so logic would suggest that spearing mantis shrimp accelerate their streamlined weapons at rates that far outpace anything seen in smashing mantis shrimp. View image of The jaws of a trapjaw ant Odontomachus sp. However, the research was difficult, because each smashing mantis shrimp attack unfolded far too quickly to be visible to the naked eye. Chameleons and salamanders might have evolved to be super-fast because of their tendency to be super-slow. So that you can chase after fast prey. Back in , when Patek and her colleagues published their findings on peacock mantis shrimp, the acceleration they had documented was a world record. What is now a useful escape mechanism might have begun as an inconvenient side-effect of running around armed with a potent weapon. Such springs distribute stress in three dimensions to reduce the chance of failure. Paradoxically, super-fast weapons are very slow. When the latch is released, the elastic structure snaps back into its normal length. This sends the ant's head whiplashing upwards with such force that it is launched off the ground and cartwheels through the air. There is another factor that might explain why super-fast acceleration appears to be rare in the animal kingdom. Because mammals and birds keep their muscles warm enough to work efficiently no matter the ambient temperature, they rarely experience any shortfall in performance. But why would one shrimp stand head and shoulders above all other animals when it comes to accelerating? We can probably all accept that humans are not the swiftest members of the animal kingdom.

It is one thing to be able to run fast, but it is another thing to go from nought to 60 in record time. As well as snapping their jaws shut on small insects to stun or kill them, they also turn their power on their own bodies.

Take the smashing mantis shrimp. They use these sharp javelins to pierce the phoenix banda ms en of passing fish, which they then eat. The turning point came when a BBC film crew with a high-speed camera offered to rent the equipment to Patek and her colleagues.

The peacock mantis shrimps accelerate their clubs so rapidly, they generate an area of unusually low pressure in the water. The elastic spring in the shrimp's exoskeleton could trigger extreme accelerations that no other creature seemed capable of matching.

Far, far beyond. This releases energy so explosively that a small and lightweight structure, like the chameleon's tongue, can be accelerated at a tremendous rate.

In fact, mammals and birds are out-accelerated by animals that generally lack a reputation for speed: reptiles and amphibians.

But apart from human technology like catapults, elastic structures are rarely used in our corner of the animal kingdom. There she began studying the way some species of mantis shrimp use their club-like mouth parts to repeatedly thump marine snails into submission, smashing open the hard shells to feed on the soft tissue within.

Anderson, working with his colleague Stephen Deban of the University of South Florida in Tampa, has devised an explanation.

A predatory mammal can chase down its prey in the cool of dawn or on a warm slowest to fastest animals. When those acceleration rates were formally clocked, they were breathtaking: thousands of times faster than anything previously seen in nature. Like the mantis shrimp, the trap-jaw ant hauls open its jaws using muscle power, stretching elastic structures in its head in the process.

The idea suggests that chameleons and salamanders might have evolved to be super-fast because of their tendency to be super-slow. A key feature behind the shrimp's accelerative prowess was a tiny saddle-shaped spring in its exoskeleton: a spring similar in appearance to those used in some engineering applications.

To some extent this seems to be true. But many of our closest relatives, the mammals, are capable of astonishing speeds and accelerations.

This is the world of super-fast acceleration: a world in which things do not always make immediate sense. Elastic structures offer these animals a way to catch a meal even when their muscles are cold.

After their study of the peacock mantis shrimp, Patek and her colleagues decided to turn their attention to a related group that had the potential to achieve even great accelerations. Most obviously, perhaps the shrimp is not terribly unusual. By carefully orientating its body just before triggering its jaws, a trap-jaw ant can ensure that its jaws strike the ground just as they snap shut.

These elastic structures show less of a drop in performance with temperature than muscles slowest to fastest animals.

Reptiles slowest to fastest animals amphibians do not have this slowest to fastest animals. Although it is the rosette-nosed chameleon's relatively large muscles that help it outcompete other species, the real secret to its accelerating tongue — and, in fact, the secret to super-fast acceleration in general — lies elsewhere.

If the ambient temperature is slowest to fastest animals, their muscles are generally cold, stiff and slow to respond. A tiny reptile called the rosette-nosed chameleon holds the current record among the amniotes: that is, animals that give birth on land, meaning reptiles, birds and mammals.

This encourages the formation of vapour bubbles. The mantis shrimp flipped that accepted wisdom on its head.

Christopher Anderson , now at the University of South Dakota, published this extraordinary finding in January But he also knew that biologists had tended to study larger chameleons with a body length — not including the tail — of at least 10cm. But because they are so fast, and so likely to involve small structures, they have simply gone unnoticed by biologists. In a study, Patek and her colleagues discovered that spearing mantis shrimps achieve peak acceleration rates about times lower than their smashing shrimp cousins. In a study , Anderson had shown that the muscles controlling the tongue are larger, relative to body size, in small chameleons than in big ones. The attacks it performs with its club-like mouthparts are so fast, and so brief, that their exact speed went unappreciated by scientists until about 15 years ago — when our high-speed camera technology finally caught up. When that elastic energy is released the jaws shut. The comparison is apt, given that the ant can release an elastic structure in its head to snap those jaws shut on its prey. As it happens they are a favourite food of reptiles armed with elastically-powered super-fast tongues — but the ants can accelerate far faster than the reptiles' tongues. These chameleons feed in the same way as their larger cousins, by flicking out their tongue. In the case of the chameleon, it appears to be elastic fibres in the tongue itself that help it to unfurl so rapidly. Patek and her colleagues speculate that this behaviour might have come about by accident. Why be fast? Even on a chilly morning, these animals can keep their muscles relatively warm, which means those muscles can respond quickly to provide a sharp burst of speed. In other words, super-fast weapons might be difficult to control, and that could reduce their likelihood of evolving. It probably helps that mammals and birds can control their body temperature. Spearing mantis shrimp such as the zebra mantis shrimp have mouthparts shaped like tiny, hydrodynamic javelins, rather than fat clubs. This suggested that small chameleons should be capable of greater tongue accelerations than larger species. It is only reptiles and amphibians that have evolved them. It uses them to attack an animal virtually synonymous with sluggishness: a snail. Perhaps partly because those jaws are operating in air rather than water, and so meet less resistance, they accelerate faster than mantis shrimp clubs. So if any four-limbed animal is capable of super-fast acceleration, it seems like it would make sense for it to be one of these furry or feathered species. Trap-jaw ants live in the tropics. But the way these insects harness their abilities also hints at a fundamental problem with super-fast acceleration: one that might reduce its likelihood of evolving. This means that understanding super-fast acceleration means identifying those elastic structures, and the latches that keep them stretched tight and ready to release. As their name implies, they have an unusual set of jaws. In theory, mammals could also benefit from these elasticated weapons. The ants use these inelegant leaps to quickly dodge out of the way of a predator. These species are easier to handle. The poor snail finds itself facing a double-whammy: the impact of the shrimp's club itself, and a super-hot shockwave. But they do not. Maybe plenty of animals achieve these super-fast accelerations. However, a contracting muscle can instead stretch an elastic structure and hold it in a stretched state — or, better still, keep it stretched with some sort of latch. The temperature in that tiny volume of water briefly rises to levels normally associated with the surface of the Sun. Anderson and Deban think that might be why so many "ectotherms" — animals that do not control their body temperature — have evolved them. By doing so, these predators have moved beyond the acceleration rates of the swiftest cat or bird. No matter how finely-tuned or powerful a muscle is, it can never contract quickly enough. Equipped with their state-of-the-art recording equipment, Patek and her colleagues began hunting for other examples of super-fast acceleration, and within a couple of years they came across insects that can comfortably beat the peacock mantis shrimp's record. Those bubbles quickly collapse again, but when they do they release a massive amount of energy in the form of heat. They move their relatively large bodies at mind-boggling speeds. However, many chameleons are much smaller than that, including the 5cm-long rosette-nosed chameleon. Two vicious-looking pincers are held open in a pose that is ominously reminiscent of an old-fashioned mantrap. Both are marvels of evolution, optimised over countless generations to push against the boundaries of speed and acceleration. Muscle simply cannot accelerate at these astonishing rates.
