I think this threat has been heard of before in the UK. I remember similar stories about "killer bees" in the past....I and my family appear to have
survived the great butcher beetle plague of '97, too....
I was thiking about these animals the other day. Why exactly did these caterpillars bother to evolve a poison that can kill a man? Why do Portuguese
Men of War jellyfish have the cpability to bring down and kill a herd of elephants (I may be exaggerating slightly, but you know what I mean)? What's
the point? And why have sharks evolved to be able to smell a drop of blood from 70 miles away, but not bothered with being able to swim backwards?
People talk about the beauty of natural evolution, but I think they're missing the point. Your basic shark hasn't evolved to be a beautiful animal.
It's evolved to be as much as of an utter b***ard as it can.
People underestimate the contribution of spite to evolution, if you ask me.
