Dracula ant turns out to be the fastest

The Dracula ant, located mostly in the tropics of Africa, Australia and Asia, spend most of their lives burrowed into tree trunks or underground. One could easily beat the Dracula ant in a foot race. But one species,Mystrium camillae, has a pair of ingeniously designed mandibles that can snap at 200 mph, according to a study published in Royal Society Open Science . That’s 5,000 times faster than you can blink your eye and 1,000 times faster than you can snap your fingers.
