    Interesting.... I have sniffed all sorts of bugs and have expierenced no ill effects. Only one thing you should NEVER EVER TOUCH OR SNIFF OR WHATEVER ARE VELVET ANTS. These small antlike insects are acutally wingless wasps! A sting like a bullet shot. In other words PAIN! Sometimes commonly reffered to as COW KILLERS since the sting is so painful some say it could kill a mature cow! Nep.G.

    I can't believe you picked up a velvet ant! Definitely a no-go. Owch!

    No No No... I meant to never pick them up! I have seen them but never touched them! But i have seen someone get stung by one. He was hollering up to high heavens! Nep.G.

    My flytrap seems to beable to catch it's own jumping spiders and it loves them!
    I was wondering would a flytrap's sudden slowing down of growth have anything to do with eating bugs or heat? Becasue my flytrap suddenly began to grow extremly slowly ever since i fed it a bug a week back i think though it's because the nursery it came from used to use fertilizers to give their flytraps nutrients because they had too many plants in their nursery to go out and find bugs so maybe this is the first time my plant has used it's traps and as a result it got a bit shocked?
    Or we have been experiancing temps up to 45degrees celcius for the past week and i think the heat might have slowed it's growth.

    Mondo, it's summer where you are right? I am assuming then, that it is definately not time for dormancy... perhaps the plant is just putting it's energy into absorbing the insect.

    Pulsating Love Balls... dang.. I guess I didn't think much before writing that one... hope I'm not labled! Hah!

    Are harvester mites and DDLL the same thing? I have never heard of harvester Mites...

    If you want to talk about stings... I bet the guys from australia can back me up on this... I have heard the sea wasp (Jelly fish) is so poisonous that it's venom litterally explodes cells...

    Then there is the stone fish (related to the lion fish) (Why do I expect PorscheGuy to jump in here?) [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] any how, the stone fish's venom is so painful that people that have stepped on them, or been ignorant enough to touch them, have cut off their extremeties to stop the pain... Now that, is some serious hurt.

    Of course, any of you that have been stung by a south texas scorpion know that is rates just above '#### fire' on the pain meter. When I find those suckers I grab them in a pair of tongs and use a torch lighter to boil them right out of their shells... sounds cruel I know, but it is punishment for the entire species... I have toyed with the idea of tacking one of those burned husks up over entrances to my home... you know... as a warning to their kind to come no further! Argghh...

    I HATE SCORPIONS

Havester Mites are sorta the same thing as a DLL. Except they are very small and ususally go unoticed. Nep.G.

    Speaking of poisons, when a blue-ringed octopus (grows to about 3 inches in length average) bites you, you don't feel it. usually the bitten person starts to get delerious in a few hours and drops dead later if not treated. a lot of damage from something that small eh?

    pity about the scorpions though. they're some of my fave creatures.
