Interesting that this species appears to be neotenic - the adults look like juveniles of the presumed ancestor, enough so that an expert thought that they were juveniles.

Only for a moment, and the moment’s gone

My grandfather had brain cancer which required surgery back in 1993. During the surgery to remove the tumor they also removed his olfactory bulb.

Imagine if an AI went rogue and rained bombs and napalm on a neutral country, killing and maiming thousands of innocent people? Only thing I want to from that fucking war criminal is that he's handing himself over for trial at the Hague.

Whenever I hear someone use the word “toxins” outside of the appropriate scientific or medical context, or call anything a “superfood”, I just turn around and walk away. Life is too short to fill with other people’s idiotic bullshit. Read more

These waves of AFM have followed a peculiar pattern, with cases spiking every two years like clockwork. In 2018, for instance, there were more than 200 reported cases of AFM, but only 22 this year so far.

Great point, but it wasn’t an undergrad (this time). Dr. JoVonn Hill (Mississippi State University Entomological Museum) was happy to rehydrate and dig through all that feces (entomologists are weird like that! ) Read more
