Epic Catapulting Locust In Slow Motion

Locusts are powerful jumpers. The jumps may not be as controlled as a praying mantis or a leaproach, but a locust’s ability to jump 10x its own body length is more about putting distance in between them and any predators, and not about being graceful. In this Earth Unplugged, Sam and Si film a locust’s incredible escape launches, as well as some of its less than smooth landings: Epic Catapulting Locust In Slow Motion.

We have a surprising amount of videos about jumping, including one of our favorites: The Earth’s magnetic field helps foxes target mice in the snow.
