Pupa (5/10)



  1. Billions of Cicadas are about to swarm the United States in their largest numbers since 2004. Will they be arriving in a town near you? Check out my brand new YouTube video to learn about the impending emergence of Brood X. 🙂
  2. To all the moms out there, big and small, Happy Mother's Day! Here's a proud mother Wolf Spider (Tigrosa helluo) with her babies. 😊❤️
  3. Happy Earth Day! 🌎 Today we celebrate the extraordinary planet we call home. The one unlike any other in existence! In an endless expanse of space and time, you, me, and every life form we've grown to know can be found nowhere else, but here. That's why it's of utmost importance to protect this treasure with all of our being. We must rekindle that curiosity that fueled us as kids, and let it burn bright yet again. We must preserve the life that we have left; not just what we find attractive or cute, but every denizen of the one living planet. The closer you look, the more you'll realize all that is at stake. Life may not always be big and boisterous, but it is beautiful and worth saving. In the famous words of the Lorax - "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

  7. Smeringurus mesaensis (the Dune Scorpion) is a sizeable arachnid that ranges throughout the Southwestern United States and Mexico. They get their common name from the habitats in which they call home - open deserts/dunes. Individuals spend the scorching daytime hours hunkered down in burrows and only emerge to go about life once darkness has fallen. Females generally outgrow males and measure up to approximately 3 inches in length at adulthood, making them one of North America's largest scorpions! If threatened, these animals will raise the tail end of their bodies high into the air, sending a clear message to potential predators - "Back off." Those that choose not to heed this warning may be subjected to a mildly toxic, yet unpleasant sting. Reproduction takes place in late summer/early fall every year. During this time, the male scorpion will scour the land on the scent of mates. The female is able to recognize any prospective suitors by the unique vibrations that they create. Once one has gotten within range, she will meet them and initiate a courtship ritual. Should everything go well, she'll be pregnant by the end of the night. Roughly a year later, each tiny scorpling emerges from the mother's genital operculum and crawls onto her back. They will rest here until they shed their soft, newborn exoskeletons and are ready to fend for themselves.
  8. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This year, I'd like to extend a special thanks to House Centipedes. Enjoy and have a swell holiday. 😄
  9. Happy Hallows' Eve, coleopterists! I present to you: An All About Arthropods Halloween 2020 Enjoy and stay buggy! 😜
