Data from: Dynamic visual cues induce jaw opening and closing by tiger beetles during pursuit of prey

Daniel B. Zurek, Madeleine Q. Perkins & Cole Gilbert
In dynamic locomotory contexts, visual cues often trigger adaptive behaviour by the viewer, yet studies investigating how animals determine impending collisions typically employ either stationary viewers or objects. Here, we describe a dynamic situation of visually guided prey pursuit in which both impending prey contact and escape elicit observable adaptive behaviours in the pursuer, a predatory beetle. We investigated which visual cues may independently control opening and closing of the beetle's jaws during chases of...
