Afraid of beetles? It could be worse...

People were posting about beetles earlier... I'm not particularly afraid of beetles... I'd run screaming if I saw one of these though-

Good thing I don't live in tasmania- home of one of the largest crab species- the Giant Coconut Crab





Wondering how big that tree is? Here's something for comparison...

Thanks for the biology lesson today, redchigh! The Coconut Crab is the largest land-living arthropod in the world. More interesting facts here:

Coconut crab - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Heart attack material. You could put a leash on that and take it for a stroll.

Ewwwwwwwwww!!!!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
