Inspired by Creepy-Crawlies

Ants can carry 20 times their own body weight. That’s like you lifting a car!

Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones.
    Learn from their ways and become wise!

Proverbs 6: 6 New Living Translation

The average lifespan of a Ladybug/Ladybird is 2 to 3 years.

Dragonflies are expert fliers. They can fly straight up and down, hover like a helicopter and even mate mid-air. If they can’t fly, they’ll starve because they only eat prey they catch while flying.

The flight of the dragonfly is so special that it has inspired engineers who dream of making robots that fly like dragonflies.

Some male spiders pluck their cobwebs like a guitar, to attract female spiders.

The honeybee has to travel an average of 43,000 miles to collect enough nectar to make a pound of honey!

Elephant hawk moth caterpillar

One of my favourite creepy crawlies – the Elephant Hawk Moth Caterpillar. As a defensive mechanism, when the insect is threatened, it withdraws its head inside the thorax, thus swelling it up, resulting in the eyespot mimicry marks being visible more prominently. This, in turn, makes the region resemble a false head, making it look like a snake, which might confuse its predators whether it is dangerous (poisonous) or safe to eat.

This is the beautiful moth the Elephant Hawk Moth Caterpillar turns into.

And just for fun –
