The weirdest bug

[ #20248 ]
No, no, a real bug! :-)

I am desperately trying to get my hands on a camera, so that I can share with you this sick little alien :-) I had never seen something so weird as this :-)

Basically, it's kind of like a stick, the color of a tree trunk. It bends, it has claws on each end and, when you try to make it fall from the plastic cup where it is now, some spider-like silk keeps it hold :-) Then it uses his little foot (don't know how to describe it better) in a fan-like way to climb back up :-)

Awesome :-)

Anyone knows of something similar? :-)

  • Here [uminho.pt] they are :-)

    Movies soon :-)

  • Here [uminho.pt] (7.4M), here [uminho.pt] (11M) and here [uminho.pt] (11M).

    If you ask me, the third one is the best (you can see the cup going round and the bug staying on top) :-)

    BTW, I have the cup near me... the bug doesn't seem to be able to get down from it... I guess in some time I'll take it outside and leave it in the garden :-)

    oddly enough, this is one of the latest poll options at the Monastery
    • The funniest thing about it is the silk line and the way it uses it :-)

      I have a theory... since it looks like a leg when it's standing, maybe if I could get five of them I could make a bigger... oh, forget it, I think I'm just returning it to nature, as it still wasn't able to find the way out the office on his own :-)
