nineteen Before And After Photos Of Butterfly Plus Moth Transformations


The animal kingdom is full of lovely and mysterious processes, but you can find few that are more captivating and wonderful than the metamorphoses that caterpillars undergo to become moths or butterflies.

Perhaps even more incredible than the drastic transformation is how it happens. Inside their cocoons, the caterpillars are completely liquified, keeping only rudimentary “plates” that are the starting points for important features like the wings and eyes. Despite the fact that they are reduced to a protein soups, studies have indicated that some butterflies can retain behaviors that they had been taught as caterpillars. Far out!

The cool thing is the fact that many of these caterpillars are almost as impressive, if not more so , than their particular moth or butterfly counterparts. Their bright markings and structures usually serve as protection, advertising their poisonous nature or giving predators false targets to attack.

Guy Who Smashed Oklahoma 10 Commandments Monument Says Devil Made Your pet Do It


(Reuters) – A man was taken into custody on Friday on suspicion of banging over a Ten Commandments monument having a car on the grounds of the Oklahoma statehouse and then fleeing the scene, law enforcement officials said on Friday.

The U. S. Secret Program detained the man, who has not already been identified, after he was alleged to have made threatening statements at a federal building in Oklahoma City. The man told agents he urinated on the monument and ran it over having a car, said David Allison, the particular assistant special agent in charge.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said they believe a single person has been responsible for the act on Thurs night that left the 6-foot (1. 8-meter) monument broken in many large pieces not far from exactly where it was mounted. The man will be switched over to Oklahoma police.

The man said the devil told him to knock down the monument, local broadcaster KOCO quoted law enforcement officials as saying.

“He made those kind of claims, ” Allison said, without adding further details.

Conservative Christian groups fought for years to achieve the Ten Commandments displayed at the statehouse. Legislative approval was eventually given to the groups, who said they were using private funds to commemorate a historical event and were not in violation of constitutional restrictions on the state sponsoring religion.

The monument went up in 2012.

The American Civil Liberties Union has sued to have the monument removed on the coffee grounds that it violated church-and-state provisions. Groups including Satanists and Hindus have petitioned to erect their own typical monuments on the capitol grounds, saying their own monuments also will mark historical occasions.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, said the particular monument will be rebuilt.

“This monument was created to memorialize the historical significance from the Ten Commandments in guiding our personal laws and lives, ” Fallin said.
