New Zealand Spider has Fastest Jaws in the World

April 13, 2016


Researchers in the United States studied trap-jaw spiders, which live in New Zealand and South America, and found the Kiwi species struck prey with lightning speed.

The New Zealand trap-jaw spider could be the fastest in the world at striking its prey, according to the new research. Scientists used high-speed cameras to study the speed of the spiders attacking prey.

But don’t worry – Kiwi members of the species are tiny. Some of them are less than a millimetre long. New Zealand is home to around 2000 species of spider, with 95 per cent native to New Zealand.
