Anisa Abid of NG Television called me to see if I had any footage of bobbitt worms or other ambush predators. Me? Ha! Contact Anisa directly if you have footage you think might be suitable. Her email is aabid@ngs.org

"As I mentioned on the phone, I'm looking for footage of the following marine species using their ambush predator tactics on prey, preferably in high speed and HD. If anyone from your forum might happen to have this I would greatly appreciate if they could contact me as soon as possible (we're on a tight deadline). This would be for inclusion in a program by National Geographic Television on ambush predators.

bobbit worm
northern stargazer
mantis shrimp

Other footage of non-marine species are also being sought after:
bolas spider
crab spider
goliath spider
new zealand glow worm
dragonfly larvae
horned lizard
chameleons (slinging their tongue)
praying mantis

Many thanks!
