This bug OBVIOUSLY never saw Gladiator!
Russell Crowe was out and about enjoying a nice bike ride when suddenly out of nowhere he was ATTACKED by a renegade insect!
Caught with his defense down, the veteran actor did everything he could to thwart the pest, but it proved to be a formidable foe as it took refuge in his hoodie and bit him NINE TIMES!!!
Russell took to Twitter and wrote about the tragic incident:
Science always seems to be finding new species every year.
It also seems like they're always discovering some new gross bug or horrifying spider monster.
Why can't they ever discover unicorns or wood nymphs or something like that??
Science has made a top ten list for new species discovered and guess what gross bug made the list…
The CDC has recently released information that there's been an alarming increase in the number of West Nile virus cases this year!
There have been over 1,100 reported cases of the virus, with half of them coming from Texas.
We actually kinda forgot about the West Nile virus since it's out of the news.
It's a good reminder that we should really be taking precautions to help keep us safe from mosquitos, like wearing long clothes at night or using a bug repellant.
West Nile usually causes infection, can cause the West Nile Fever, and, rarely, can cause swelling of the brain!
So it's still a serious virus, that is very prevalent and can cause some real problems.
Stay away from 'squitos!
Even though it's only a myth that North American praying mantises are endangered that still doesn't mean you can mess with them.
This meanie was harassing an innocent praying mantis.
It was just trying to hang out, probably looking for some bugs to eat, when this guy came up and started messing with it.
Well this guy definitely gets more than he bargained for when the mantis goes into attack mode!
Check out the video (above) to watch a mantis defend itself!
This is not photoshopped or weird lighting or the result of spray painting.
This is the rare pink katydid.
Only about one in 500 katydids is pink, making it very rare.
Diet or a genetic mutation causes the reddish over pigmentation.
Bugs tend to be pretty gross but this one is actually kinda… cute.
Weird to call a bug cute but it's just so cool.
A hot pink bug. Who knew.
