It's a common statement that insects are stronger, faster and jump higher than almost anything by mass.
However, this leaves out that compared to their mass, all large creatures are actually pretty weak and small creatures are usually strong.
Have there been any studies where the strength of insects and mammals, for instance, is compared directly rather than by this ridiculous "per mass" method? I'd like to have comparisons between creatures that are similarly heavy.
My goal is to figure out the differences in strength between insects, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, fish, etc while actually considering that strength doesn't scale as easily as mass.
