Observing Animals

POSTED BY PRAIRIE

This morning I woke up and ate cereal for breakfast. I managed to finish all my school, check my email, look at my adventure fantasy books that I wrote, and check my email again.
Lincoln played the cello. Rachel is on my Moms computer researching bugs. She likes to collect dead beetles to cast resin them so they look really cool. I succeeded in making her move her beetle workshop place down in the basement, because it made the cabinet stink a lot, and I don’t like to sleep in my room with the thought of dead bugs haunting the cabinet.
Rachel is researching dung beetles. They are beetles that travel around using their back legs to push a ball of dung that is bigger than them. Scientists have tried putting booties and a hat on a dung beetle because if you were traveling in a desert through hot sand, it would hurt your feet, so what if it is the same for a dung beetle?
I am interested. It also turns out that one species of the dung beetle uses the stars to find it’s way home. That is really cool.
But now I am too grossed out to eat lunch.
