Not only the largest, but proportionately the fastest animal on earth.....They only fly at about 25mph, but they are moving at their body length multiplied by 100 equals inches per second. That means a 4 inch dragonfly is flying at 400 inches per second!!! The peregrine falcon would have to dive at 1500 feet per second to match the dragonfly's feat!!!
