Weblike sheath covering developing egg chambers in a giant grasshopper

Kevin Edwards, Johny Shajahan and Doug Whitman, Illinois State University

The lubber grasshopper, found throughout the southern United States, is frequently used in biology classes to teach students about the respiratory system of insects. Unlike mammals, which have red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout the body, insects have breathing tubes that carry air through their exoskeleton directly to where it’s needed. This image shows the breathing tubes embedded in the weblike sheath cells that cover developing egg chambers.

Found on National Institute of General Medical Sciences

Well. Um. Let's get started.

I guess it’s about time to introduce the character that I usually play.

Name: Amber Alethia Chase
Gender: Female
Appearance: Fair skinned, white hair with a red streak, usually seen in just a white hoodie and black knee high boots. Blind in her left eye, the other is yellow. She has multiple scars all over her body, most prominent are a cross on the back of her neck, one across her blind eye, her forehead and a weblike pattern on her back
Personality: Tough act. Careless. Extremely soft around children. Scared when shown aggression from men if she’s not in a position to defend herself.
