Pounce of tiny killer fly caught on camera

29 September 2015 Last updated at 22:41 BST

Neuroscientists have recorded the first video footage of a tiny killer fly catching its prey in mid-air, in a study of how the insect picks its targets.

They recorded high-speed video footage of the killer flies pursuing fruit-fly prey, as well as different sizes of moving beads.

Apparently the diminutive predators, just 4mm long, are not much good at judging the size of a target - so they decide whether to strike partly based on how fast a potential meal is buzzing past.

To re-enforce how scary that is, here's the local sports field. If you put every human in existence during that bottleneck event into that stadium, it would be mostly empty. There would only be someone in 1 of every 7 seats.

Makes you appreciate those 10,000 survivors, and humanity as a whole. Back when Homo sapiens sapiens was a 'critically endangered' species.


And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.
