Glad to hear it doesn't eat human flesh, because I'd hate to have to take on a swarm of those fuckers anytime soon.

Well I guess we could make it for a little bit without insects before the animals that eat insects starve and die causing the animals that eat those ones to starve and die until we starve and die because there are no animals to eat since there are no insects.

Nahhh we don't need insects at all.

I'm an instigator

A whopping 2.5 ounces! How on Earth do they get enough resources to live through the the day? I can't even carry that thing, it's so heavy!


Request an audio review. I could use some motivation.

Also, the Hercules beetle usually weights more than 120 grams. (Wikipedia-san)
