Squid exhibited higher linear approach/strike velocities and accelerations with faster-swimming fish prey compared with slower shrimp prey. Agility (i.e. turning rate) during prey encounters...

Within our quality-corrected data, 1500 m-speed (endurance) was negatively associated with squat time (power), jump distance (power) and agility speed – reflecting the expected speed–endurance trade-off; and degree of specialisation was negatively associated with average performance across tasks...

...David R. Carrier; Rebecca M. Walter; David V. Lee SUMMARY The turning agility of theropod dinosaurs may have been severely limited by the large rotational inertia of their horizontal trunks and tails. Bodies with mass distributed far from the axis of rotation have much greater rotational inertia...

The median- and pectoral-fin-powered turns of O. meleagri s are slow relative to the body- and caudal-fin-powered turns of more flexible fish. Fig. 3.
