Jewel beetles can die from excessive sex with beer bottles

October 7, 2011 · 3 comments

We (people) must feel lucky that we can distinguish a human being among other creatures when it comes to reproduction. Imagine you could not tell the difference between a monkey and a human?

Sadly for jewel beetles, they can not always distinguish their loved ones among… beer bottles. They see no difference and that is why they mate with beer bottles. Colored brown, the bottles resemble female partners in the eyes of male beetles. They die of exhaustion while mating with bottles under hot Australian sun. Poor things.

Australia should ban brown bottles.

I did not take this material from there, but I would not be surprised if it sits there too. The nature of the two blogs is somewhat similar, perhaps that explains why you see similar things here. Material similar to what’s presented in this post surfaces pretty quickly and gets picked up by numerous sources.

Lol you are right, but i guess posts here role up in a pattern after they are posted on that blog. I follow that blog on tumblr and when i see this site it’s like looking at their archives although this website has some really interesting things, Jus sayin..
