Centipede Eats Mouse

There's something disturbing about an insect eating a mammal but here it is in all of its gory glory. Don't watch if you're a squeamish person who cannot stand the sight of a massive centipede consuming a little mouse.

Dung beetles race to food

A monkey takes a greasy poop in the jungle and dung beetles hurtle themselves towards their own little piece of nirvana to make dung balls. Remember, "The bigger your ball, the better your chances."

Phyllobates Bicolor and Fruit Flies

The frogs in the video snap up fruit flies with a lightning-fast tongue.

Bearded Dragons Eating Giant Mealworms

These dragons eat a lot of mealworms which slither in a feeding dish. The sound of the worms' bodies cracking and getting mashed under the force of the dragons' mandibles may be heard throughout the video. At the end of the segment, the dragon on the lower left looks at the camera and seems to say, "Where's the dessert?"

Life in the Undergrowth - Dragonfly

The majesty of Mother Nature's creatures is shown in the flight mechanics of the dragonfly. If man set out to create a machine as elegant and as versatile as a dragonfly, it would probably cost a few million dollars. Per dragonfly.

TomM's Tarantulas and True Spiders

It's feeding time and these arachnids are hungry.

Ladybug Mania!

Releasing ladybugs to combat aphids at the Cape Tech Greenhouse. From the video, I learned that a pint of ladybugs in a paper bag contains 9,000 ladybugs and they "tickle" when they're on your hands and forearms. The video was taken last month but was only uploaded yesterday.

Playing with a Praying Mantis

The mantis is lurking around the garbage when it should be in the grass and hooking crickets, flies, and other delectable morsels from the insect kingdom.

Stink Bugs Are Cool

I could watch this bugger all day. Alas, I have something called "work" to perform and wages to earn.

Huge Bug

    I know it's not a bed bug in the following video but the theme of bed bugs is getting tired. I'm thinking of changing this blog into a general interest blog about bugs. I'm still a little boy at heart so I'm interested in staring and bugs and occasionally collecting them into jars and then releasing them again. Fleeting ownership is all I can bear since bugs should be free and buzzing around outdoors. I don't know what kind of bug is shown in the video but it looks cool and measures 1.75" in length. It's also dead since it doesn't move or even shiver when the videographer flips it over.

Bed Bugs: A NYC Invasion

   A student project which covers the bed bug situation in NYC. The Starship Troopers footage at the beginning was probably used without authorization but it's a little overdramatic, don't you think?
