Just curious to hear from the community about Amazing animal and insects?

If you have links to sites etc.
It kind of spawns ideas and understanding on how we as humans communicates as opposed to insects perhaps, how they survive with different ways of catching prays or funny ways to reproduce themself.

I think I heard of a butterfly that actually has an eye at the end of the long sprout genital ..or something?

Not sure if I am a butterfly myself thou, dreaming that I am a human who wish to have those talents:)

Do you guys have some samples of amazing insects/animals?

Saw a locusts documentary the other day and it was amazing, which made me look more into them.

This one has a funny communication skill =) (Leave me f**c alone, I'm just a leaf passing by)

Not much there on the moon thou, so no other animal has a reason to go there, only us wich might be odd..no women, no coffe..only sand and itīs not a friendly place.

Must have been some communication skills that started it all from the dawn of man and evolution, I doubt a single man could pull that off thou.

Yepp we as human race are pretty amazing ..just look around the world.
But then again I knew this of course, no need for you to be a cocky human being and tell me that:beerchug:

The lyre bird has some great simulating skills..


love the camera sound with motor drive, and the car alarm and the chain saw at the end.

Try the hummingbird (http://video.pbs.org/video/1380512531/). The HD video in this program is amazing.

And the cuttlefish (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/kings-of-camouflage.html).

[...]a bizarre, alien-like creature like no other. It's an animal with eight sucker-covered arms growing out of its head, three hearts pumping its blue-green blood, and a doughnut-shaped brain. It has the ability to change its color and shape to blend in with seaweed and rocks, and it has a knack for switching on electrifying light shows that dazzle its prey. Perhaps most surprising of all, this animal is quite intelligent, with a highly complex brain.

Also crows (http://video.pbs.org/video/1621910826/) which can use tools, and solve multi-step puzzles.

And when was the last time you tried living in a steam vent: extremophiles (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/nature/lives-of-extremophiles.html).

Building a Lightwave cuttlefish I think would be an interesting project.

And to the other part of your question: Horizontal gene transfer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horizontal_gene_transfer).
