Weird insects

Puss Moth Caterpillar
1. With their soft bodies and high protein content, caterpillars are usually incredibly vulnerable. To fend off predators, they often resort to scare tactics. Sometimes its in the form of bright, flashy colors; sometimes its in the form of mimicry .....
Devils Flower Mantis Idolomantis Diabolica
2. One of the largest types of praying mantis, the Devils Flower Mantis is also one of the strangest. And thats saying a lot when youre talking about praying mantids. Females of the species can measure up to 5 inches (13 cm) long, and have developed a range of natural coloring that allows them to mimic the Devils Flower, a type of orchid. Mantids are predators, and their hunting style usually involves sitting motionless until their prey comes within reach, and then whipping their forearms out at lightning speed to snag flies, beetles, even, in some cases, birds. The Devils Flower Mantis uses color patterns that mimic a flower to actually lure its prey within reach. .....
Brazilian Treehopper
3. The image shown here is a model created by Alfred Keller, a German sculptor, in the 1950?s. But dont let the fact that its a model fool you .....
Dasychira Pudibunda Caterpillar
4. Also known as the Pale Tussock, the Dasychira Pudibunda is a moth native to Denmark. Its bright yellow caterpillars are covered in patches of spiky hair that resemble porcupine quills, and along the center of their back is another row of hair tufts, one on each segment of its body, culminating in a large black or brown spine at the rear end.From a distance the caterpillar resembles a sponge, but up close, where you can actually see the double row of mandibles, its not quite so cuddly. Every now and then, Pale Tussock populations will explode, resulting in a carpet of these caterpillars covering the trees. In 1988, a wave of Pale Tussocks demolished 20 hectares of beech forest in Denmark. .....
Extatosoma Tiaratum
5. Anybody whos ever seen Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom should instantly recognize this monstrosity, commonly referred to as the Giant Prickly Stick Insect. As the largest known stick insect, the extatosoma tiaratum can reach lengths of 8 inches (20 cm) and is usually covered with large thorny spikes, which double as both camouflage and defensive armor.Most of the time this insect attempts to blend in with its surroundings, but if it feels threatened it will rear up on its hind legs and spread out its front legs, like a scorpion. Interestingly enough, it also releases a chemical that is meant to scare away predators. To humans, it smells like peanut butter. .....
Pipevine Swallowtail Caterpillar
6. The Pipevine Swallowtail is a beautiful fluorescent blue butterfly thats commonly found in North and Central America. Its larvae, on the other hand, is an armored congealedbloodred caterpillar with tinted visor shades for eyes and a quadruple row of blunt horns running across its body.The caterpillars live in groups while they are young, but over time they will wander off on their own before entering the chrysalis stage. They also change color as they grow, shifting from red to black, while their horns take on a bright orange hue. The bright colors are a warning .....
Atlas Moth
7. Most of the time, its the caterpillar of a moth species that looks the strangest, while the moth itself is drab and uninteresting. Apparently, the Atlas moth didnt get the memo. With a 10 inch (25 cm) wingspan, Atlas moths are believed to be the largest moth species on the planet. They also have a very unique trait .....
Tailed Emperor Butterfly Caterpillar
8. Take a trip to the east coast of Australia around March or April and you might run into one of these strange creatures. The caterpillar of the Tailed Emperor butterfly looks pretty normal .....
Spiny Flower Mantis Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi
9. Another incredible looking mantis, the Spiny Flower Mantis (Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi) is, again, a flower mantis, pulling its bizarre ornamentation from the appearance of a flower. This mantis is very small, measuring only 1.5 inches (38 mm) and is found in select locations in Southern Africa. And like most mantids, the Spiny Flower Mantis is a voracious cannibal, and the older they get the more likely they will be to eat other mantids that come across their path. Another interesting fact is that the females egg sac can be nearly three time larger than its own body. .....
Scorpionfly
10. While this insect looks like the result of some bizarre genetic experiment that spliced a scorprion stinger onto a wasp, that .....
Calleta Silkmoth Caterpillar
11. If Jackson Pollock and God had a design meeting, they would probably come up with something similar to the Eupackardia calleta larva, also known as the Calleta silkmoth caterpillar. With a massive color range and dangerous looking barbs, the Calleta silkmoth caterpillar is something most predators stay away from. The moth is found in the Southern US, and the color pattern of the caterpillar changes based on age and environmental factors. It feeds mostly on the Mexican jumping bean, a plant found throughout Mexico, Texas, and Arizona. .....
The Longest Insect
12. The Borneo walking stick (Phobaeticus kirbyi) can grow to up to 32 centimeters long, with another 14 centimeters if you measure the legs stretched out! But you might not see one, even if you are in Borneo and looking for them, since they closely resemble the slender tree branches they live on. .....
The Biggest
13. Goliath beetles (Goliathus) are the largest insects in terms of bulk and weight. They can reach over 4 inches long, which doesnt sound like much, til you look at the picture. The beetles are native to the African tropics, where they subsist on tree sap and fruit. Goliath beetles can be kept as pets, just feed them dog food (but dont expect them to come when called). .....
Strongest animal on earth
14. The Hercules beetle (Dynastes hercules) is a species of rhinoceros beetle that lives in South America. It can grow to over 6 inches in length (counting its horns), but its claim to fame is its strength. The Hercules beetle can support 850 times its own weight on its shell! This beetles eats only vegetation and is not aggressive, except to other Hercules beetles, when males fight each other over females. .....
Weird Lifecycle
15. The twistedwing parasite (Strepsiptera) is an order of insects who display a gruesome lifestyle. The larval stage parasite will climb a flower and wait for an insect pollinator (bee or wasp) to come along. They climb aboard the bee, burrow into its body, and change into a secondstage larva. They feed off the blood and organs of the host. An adult male parasite will emerge from the host and search for a mate a process that takes such little time that he never develops a mouth. The adult female remains in the hosts body for the rest of her life, never growing legs or wings. She mates by pushing only her reproductive organs outside of the bees body! Her offspring will emerge and look for new hosts. .....
Violent Sex
16. The gruesome behavior or the male African bat bug (Afrocimex constrictus) is directed at other bat bugs. Instead of copulating via the females sex organs, he will stab her abdomen to release sperm directly into her bloodstream. So the females have evolved paragenitals, a .....
Bizarre Body Parts
17. Seed Beetles have rough sex, too, but in the conventional manner. What is very unconventional is the male seed beetles penis (shown in above picture). He can do some damage with that thing. So female seed beetles have developed thicker, more padded reproductive canals over time as selfdefense against their paramour. .....
Deadliest of all
18. The mosquito (Culicidae) causes the deaths of millions of people every year. They spread yellow fever, dengue fever, encephalitis, West Nile Virus, and malaria from person to person, without being affected by the diseases themselves. They also transmit the debilitating filariasis worm, which can lead to elephantiasis in humans. Mosquitos are nasty business. .....
The Prettiest
19. The Orchid mantis (Hymenopus coronatus) is a variety of flower mantis usually found in Malaysia and Indonesia. Doesnt the mantis pictured look just like an orchid? They hide in the flowers they resemble, waiting for other delicious insects to alight. See a beautiful picture of a pink flower mantis here. .....
The strangest of all
20. The weirdest insect of all is the Western honeybee (Apis mellifera). That may surprise you, but the only reason they dont seem strange is because we are familiar with them. But think... how many insects produce a delicious food product enjoyed by bees, bears, and people? In addition to honey, bees produce beeswax, honeycombs, royal jelly, and venom. Bees communicate with each other, coordinate colony activities, determine the fate of the next generation, and are master architects, chemists, and engineers. Bees are crucial to food production as they pollinate billions of dollars worth of crops each year. Just dont step on one barefoot .....
Bedbugs
21. Bedbugs are terrifying, feeding on sleeping humans in the privacy of our own beds. These little bloodsuckers have been the bane of thousands with their resurgence in the U.S., and their violent mating habits certainly arent going to win them any more fans. A male bedbug stabs the female in the abdomen with his sharpened genitalia and inseminates her directly in her body cavity. The male bedbug .....
Scorpion Flies
22. In the case of brawn vs. brains, female scorpion flies dont care much for either. The ladies choose their mates based on salivasecretion ability, wooed by spit and spit alone. In an effort to please, the male scorpion fly will hack up a dripping, nutritious nuptial gift for his sweetheart, with the help of enlarged salivary glands. The dribble draws her in and distracts her .....
Soapberry Bugs
23. A single soapberry female is a rare find, and the male goes to extremes to lock down his special lady friend. When mating, soapberry bugs resemble twins connected at the rear .....
Fireflies
24. The firefly is one of the flashiest bugs around. Each species of firefly has a special flicker code to attract mates of the same species. But male fireflies beware: not all female fireflies deserve glowing reviews. The female of one species of firefly has learned to imitate the moves of another. When a gullible male approaches, the firefly femme fatale captures and devours him. Some entomologists think its the sperm of the male firefly that triggers the urge in the female to eat the males of another species. A delightful snack for an already sexually satisfied female. .....
Mayflies
25. Aristotle described a peculiar bloodless animal that emerged from near the Black Sea and perished just a day later. He named the creature the ephemeron, meaning oneday living. Today we have another name for this insect: the mayfly. The great philosopher wasnt quite correct in saying it has a 24hour existence, but he was close. Though mayfly youths can live from several months to several years in streams or decaying matter, their adult lives are indeed short, lasting as little as three hours for some species. As mature adults, they have only one goal .....
Honeybees
26. In honeybee populations, males are a dime a dozen. Thousands vie for a shot to be with a virgin queen, but only a lucky few succeed. For every mating flight a queen bee embarks upon, she has sex with an average of 12 drones. Males take turns mounting the queen during her flight, and each one can mate seven to 10 times. The queen stores the semen from every midair tryst for the rest of her life, using only a few sperm at a time to fertilize her eggs. When the drone finally pulls away, his barbed penis and abdominal tissues are ripped from his body. He dies shortly thereafter .....
Hissing Cockroaches
27. Despite their rather striking burntorange shells and their increasing popularity as pets, Madagascar giant hissing cockroaches are a vulgar, brutish kind. Named for the low growling sound they emit when disturbed, males have been known to push female cockroaches (who resist by kicking with their hind legs) into corners and take them by force. These bugeyed bad boys like to play the odds, pursuing everything that moves .....
Fig Wasps
28. Truly the Sad Keanu of the insect world, the male fig wasp never gets to venture beyond his tiny home. Born from eggs laid inside flowers within the fleshy, hollow receptacle of a fig, the male wasps have but one purpose in their short lives: to procreate. While the winged black female wasp matures inside a female flower, the wingless amberbodied male crawls feebly toward her. He bites a small hole through the flowers ovarian barrier that separates him from his chosen lady, and through the opening, he modestly inseminates the unsuspecting female. He does this with every female he can possibly lay his tiny eyes upon. Postcopulation, the sexes separate to perform their individual tasks. While the female scrapes pollen from anthers, our male fig wasp works side by side with his buddies for hours to dig escape tunnels. The female then flies away, leaving her liberators to die, wingless and alone. .....
The Darth Vader Ant
29. The ant Cephalotes atratus is bigger than average, dresses all in black, wears a scary helmet, and appears to have super powers. Its called the Gliding Ant, but it resembles Darth Vader. This ants super power was discovered in 2004 by Stephen P. Yavoniak as he was sitting high up in the rainforest canopy.While hanging around in the canopy waiting for mosquitoes to bite him (for research purposes rather than the fun of it), he brushed several dozen ants from him and noticed something odd. .....
Elvis Presley Shield Bug
30. A photographer was left all shook up after spotting the face of Elvis on the back of a bug. With markings on its back resembling human eyes, nose, mouth, and a pompadour hairdo, the unusual stink bug bears an uncanny resemblance to the King of rock n roll.Photographer Darlyne Murawski from Massachusetts, US spotted the Pentatomoidea bug, also known as a giant shield bug, by chance.Darlyne was on a photographic assignment with National Geographic in the Khao Chong Forest Reserve in southern Thailand when she came across the unusual creature sitting on a leaf.The bug has previously been spotted in the forests of Singapore, where it was likened to the Sesame Street character Bert. (Source) .....
Donald Trump Caterpillar
31. You can see the resemblance, cant you? This is a Megalopyge opercularis, or flannel moth caterpillar. It was spotted by photographer Jeff Cremer and biologist Phil Torres in the Peruvian rainforest. They look furry, and will become a fluffy moth as well, but dont touch it! Its fur is made up of venomous spines that can cause painful swelling that lasts for days. .....
Wattle Cup Caterpillar
32. Evolution doesnt exactly have a lot of common sense, does it? First it decides to make the most colorful and enticing caterpillar on the planet, then it decides to cover the creepycrawly in thorns and lots of them! Found only throughout various parts of Northern Australia, weve heard that this quirky caterpillar, known as Calcarifera ordinate, has a potent sting that is more painful than three simultaneous wasp stings. .....
Hummingbird Moth
33. Its probably Hemaris thysbe, the Hummingbird Clearwing Moth or Common Clearwing (wingspan 3850 mm), which so closely resembles a hummingbird when feeding that many people never really notice that its a moth hovering over the flowers.The diurnal nature of many of these moths (most moths are nocturnal) and its similarities to the hummingbird in size, foraging behavior, and feeding structures often makes it one of the most common cases of mistaken identity in nature. The Hemaris thysbe moth feeds through a proboscis, a long, strawlike tube kept curled under the head when not in use. Its range includes Alaska and the Northwest Territories south through British Columbia to Oregon, east through the Great Plains and the Great Lakes area to Maine and Newfoundland, and south to Florida and Texas. Central Texas residents know that its range incorporates the Texas Hill Country, especially in the spring. .....
Darth Maul Bug
34. The Oncopeltus fasciatus is also known as the Large Milweed Bug. But the Darth Maul Bug is way cooler. It feeds mainly on grains, particularly those of the milkweed. .....
Snake Caterpillar
35. Deilephila elpenor, known as the Elephant Hawkmoth, is a large moth of the Sphingidae family. The species is found throughout Britain and Ireland.The larva is about 75 millimetres (3.0 in) long and is green and brown in color. When startled, the caterpillar draws its trunk into its foremost body segment. This posture resembles a snake with a large head and four large eyelike patches. Caterpillars are preyed upon by birds, but these shy away (at least for some time) from caterpillars in .....
