Because where there’s a will, there’s a way, Kobe University ecologist Shinji Sugiura has discovered a species of water beetle (Regimbartia attenuata) that, when eaten by a pond frog (Pelophylax nigromaculatus), will actually crawl through the frog’s intestinal tract and emerge from its anus, no worse for wear minus being covered in shit. Some more info while I ponder whether I’d be willing to make the journey, or ready to just call it a life:
Dang — one beetle made the Keister Run in only six minutes? Clearly that beetle did not like the smell of frog guts. Or was already late for a date. Sorry I’m late, I just had to– you know what? *spreading napkin in lap* That’s a story for another day. *date pukes from smell* I had to crawl through a frog’s anus to get here, okay?!
