Tiny Blob Monsters In Elizabeth’s Backyard!!!!

They’re COMING FOR US!

The TINY BLOB MONSTERS!

Elizabeth M-G’s already come face to, er, face with these mysterious visitors from far, far, away. “I was moving some plants around on my porch yesterday when I noticed these weird blobby things on a small leaf. Cute tiny blob monsters?? After a little online searching, these “creatures” turned out to be the eggs of a Leaf-footed Bug, probably the species [Say like Cliff Clavin: Ed.] Acanthocephala Terminalis, which I see around my Connecticut yard pretty frequently. Weird and cute!”

[Weird AND Cute? You’re at the right website. -Ed.]

“The second photo shows the eggs from a different angle, where you can actually just make out the baby bugs folded up inside. Again… weird, and cute?? I think so…maybe.”

But How Many Pixels Is That?

Pixel could be the world’s shortest cat when measured from her paws to her shoulder. She is about 5″ tall- the size of a soft drink can! (You also get some great British narration with this Barcroft TV YouTube clip.)

But then, a month-long stay at one of those vacuum-rehab places could set him right.
