Forget Cheetahs, Great White Sharks or Falcons because an Australian ’Dracula’ Ant has officially smashed a record in the animal kingdom.

Using high speed video, US Scientists have been able to record the jaws of the ant which apparently snap shut 5000 time faster than the blink of the eye.

In fact, the jaws can go from zero to 300km/h in roughly 0.000015 seconds.

This type of ant are common in the northern parts of Australia and South-East Asia.

The killer bite of the Dracula Ant makes it the fastest on planet earth.
