Most Successful Predator

Forget lions, dragonflies are the world’s most successful hunters. They are four times more likely to catch their prey than big cats. Dragonflies catch more than 95% of the prey they target. When targeting prey, they keep it in sight while adjusting their flight. It appears dragonflies can predict how their prey will move. That ability combined with their extreme agility, gives them a high success rate.
