I’m having elephant weevil withdrawals. Remember how I was saying I should have given him a name and kept him as a pet, well it turns out that maybe I really should have!
While reading the free mX paper on the train home from work, I came across an interesting article. It explained that even though insects have tiny brains, they may actually be surprisingly smarter than we ever thought. And, get this, they might even have a sense of self!
Oh, my poor little elephant weevil. I could have loved it like a tiny little pet, but oh, I KILLED IT! (well, tossed it outside).
I don’t know about you, but that puts an entirely different spin on the idea of killing bugs. What am I supposed to do now?
AND – that also makes you think about which bugs are actually evil… I vote spiders.
