Smart Butterflies.

I think they’re on to something…

The Alcon Blue butterflies deposit their larvae on marsh gentian plants where exploring ants find them, identify the chemical coating, and take the butterfly larvae back to the ant colony and feed them until they grow up and leave.

I wonder what a person would have to do to mimic this…cover their kid in chocolate? money? ice cream? Not that I would ever consider doing such a thing, of course….

  1. Of course, no one would ever consider doing such a thing…but for sake of arguement, I’d go with money…chocolate and ice cream both run the risk of melting away. 😛

    Where do you find this stuff?

  2. Feeling a bit crabby (from being up Early am) and thinking of alternatives to ensure a peaceful sleep, are you??
