While many people might cringe at this topic, insects and bugs are fascinating creatures. Did you know that a ladybird might eat more than 5,000 insects in its lifetime and that fruit flies were the first living creatures to be sent into space? Dragonflies have been on earth for 300 million years and grasshoppers existed before dinosaurs. A bee’s wings beat 190 times a second, that is 11,400 times a minute. One dung beetle can drag 1,141 times its weight, which is like a human pulling six double-decker buses! Large groups of fireflies sometimes flash in unison and butterflies’ taste with their feet. A sea skater’s leg hair traps air, enabling it to float on water. These topics and many more can be explored by members who join this class.
