(Before you skip this post, you have to see the one-minute video about an unusual friendship at the end of the post.)
I nearly fell off my bike when this 15cm (6-inch) guy buzzed by me, just barely missing my face. He is handsome, don’t you think? Well, chances are that you will not find anything beautiful or heartwarming about this crunchy creature.
Why is it that most of us get the creeps when we see or even just think of insects, worms, spiders, and the like? Especially considering the fact that most of those rubbery soft or hard-shelled miniature beings in segmented bodies and equipped with tentacles, antennae, horns, compound eyes, multiple eyes, two or four featherless wings, lots of hairy or toothed legs, claws, pincers, stingers etc. are not dangerous to man. Maybe it’s because they are so different from us mammals and we just do not understand them.
