Why do you have to be evil when you are so cute?

These little guys are parasites on horses and cattle (and deer and sometimes people) and can cause irritation, extreme discomfort, and punch little holes in their skin for their larvae to breath through as they crawl around under the skin for up to 5 months.


This kitten was found as a stray with an abscess in its neck. He was taken to an emergency clinic, where they made an incision to drain the abscess but weren’t able to remove the botfly larvae. He was then transferred to our shelter, where our vet removed the larvae. He was treated with antibiotics and sent to foster care to recover; the hole closed naturally on its own, and within a few weeks he was adopted into a new home. –  closereaching

The flying Bat Bot can swoop and dive like the real thing
A team of scientists from Caltech and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created what they claim is the nearest bat biomimic yet. Its flight mechanism replicates the complex movements of bat wings, allowing it to bank and dive like the real thing. The bot’s “bones” are made from carbon fiber while its wing membrane is a custom silicone-based material an incredible 56 microns thick. Read more
