Slow-motion world for small animals

Smaller animals tend to perceive time in slow-motion, a new study has shown.

This means that they can observe movement on a finer timescale than bigger creatures, allowing them to escape from lager predators.

Insects and small birds, for example, can see more information in one second than a larger animal such as an elephant.

Makes a great deal of sense actually. Little critters have to be able to observe and flee quickly. Whereas an elephant is so big he doesn't have to be all that concerned...one good stomp and most issues are solved!
