Here is some cool footage about the reflexes and jumping abilities of kangaroo rats. Not a new discovery. People were bowled over by Disney's "Living Desert" 60+ years ago. It was a "box office favorite". But it's still amazing to see.

That's pretty incredible, talk about an arms race between predator and prey. Hard for me to imagine studying animals without all this tech, it certainly has come a long way.
