Unfortunately for the sleeping bag bugs, quickipedes are also very fast and have excellent night vision. During the day, they curl their tails around weed strands and swing freely. At night, they chase after prey at high speed, opening their jaws wide to swallow small animals whole or to take quick bites out of larger animals before retreating into the dark. They reach up to half a meter long. Lacking a complete shell that would only weigh them down, quickipedes have a series of silicon carbide belts for protection from still larger predators.
