Chameleons are able to project their tongue like a torpedo to capture prey, such as insects. In as little as 0.07 seconds, the elastic tongue is propelled up to twice the length of their body. Faster than the eye can see, Lenny the chameleon catches a cricket and then tries to catch a fly. The action is slowed down with a GoPro to allow for a clearer view. Lenny lives happily at a pet store in Peterborough, Canada.
