Thank heavens for the invention of slow motion video. We would never be able to truly appreciate the wonders of nature without this technological breakthrough. And though we”ve seen flies meet an incredibly detailed end thanks to slow motion, we”ve never seen it at the hands (or tongue) of a chameleon…in slow motion. See just how the color-changing lizard grabs his tasty snack in the best use of slo-mo ever.

Despite the pacing of the video, the chameleon”s tongue catches the fly in one quick, smooth motion. Imagine if humans could move this fast! We would surely be able to outrun anything at this speed.
