The beetles run so fast, their eyes can’t process information as quickly as they need to and they temporarily blind themselves. When attacking prey, the beetle will aim itself at its target and start running, but will need to stop and relocate the prey because it cannot keep an eye on it. Once it has reoriented itself, it charges forward again and hopes to run into the target.
