Peanut-Head Bug - Talented Defensive Tactics

The peanut-head bug is subject of many incorrect legends in its range countries. Most of the legends state that the bug's bite is deadly depending on the color of its wings, or that its bite is only deadly if the bitten doesn't copulate within 24 hours or something along those lines. In truth, the “peanut bug” is actually a harmless plant-hopper that has a straw for a mouth and can't even bite.

 

 

Spider Monkeys - Jungle Acrobats, High Swingers

The spider monkey is just that - spidery. Mostly dark brown and black all over they have long tails, spindly legs, little pot bellies, little heads, long hands and bare faces. They make their way through the jungle swinging acrobatically with their gangly long arms.
