Researchers are looking at variety of animals to see what they can reveal about human metabolism.

Which animal has the highest metabolic rate?

It’s the hummingbird, according to an article by Stanford researchers.

An article in Vox notes that their diet is from mostly sugary sources, and “they have a blood sugar level that would be considered diabetic in humans.” However, with their wings fluttering at 60 to 80 strokes per second, they burn through that sugar quickly.

Start flapping your arms.
