    So true.

    If bugs didn’t eat other bugs they’d overrun the world.

    So how are some of you people out there feeling about Spiders and Pray-Mantises now…??

    And animals don’t eat other animals?


    BTW, remember – humans are animals.

    “I don’t like spiders and snakes, and that’s not what it takes…”

    Sometimes it’s fascinating to watch.

    I saw a small spider build a web near the ground between two objects about 3" apart on the patio, then catch and hoist her prey, a large beetle, up into the net. Quite a process for a couple of hours. She secured the bug, then went back and forth, hoisting from this side, then that side, poco a poco, until she had him a good 8" up.

    You eat other animals all the time, Calvin.

    One of the more noteworthy sets of experiments is measuring the chemical response of plants. Many of them will produce aromatic chemicals when eaten, essentially a chemical scream to other plants nearby. It can produce some interesting results, such as increased tannins in leaves, which moths and butterflies don’t like the taste of. That smell from the grass blade or weed in the yard when you break/cut part of it off (such as mowing or weeding) is not necessarily just a smell of the sap or the cell contents when the cell walls are ruptured. Many plants (possibly most) “warn” other plants of predation. Take plant anatomy or plant ecology at your local university. Some really weird things that plants do when eaten or otherwise damaged.
    .
    Some plants even go so far as to poison or otherwise damage other plants. Look up allelopathy. Juniper’s a classic, with the chemicals in the plant causing many other types of plants to not grow well within the drip-line. (There are some grasses that seem to just ignore Juniper’s chemical warfare. A vision of a grass bunch yelling “haha!” at the juniper overhead that is trying to poison it comes to mind.)

    While stationed in Hawaii we would through two big centipedes in a box or can and watch them fight, man are the mean (territorial it would seem).

    It’s a bug-eat-bug world, Calvin.

    Just because you can’t easily recognise a plants face, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have one.
