Entomology B/C

Postby SOnerd » Fri Aug 22, 2014 10:04 pm

Hey guys!
I guess I'll start the question marathon this year! :D
I don't think the new list is out yet, so I guess we can just go off the old one until that one comes out :)
If you are new and don't know how question marathons work, you can go to the Question Marathon Explained Thread... http://scioly.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=193&t=5981

Okay.. I'll start with an easy one.

Ento is Lyfe. <3 Ento. <3 Bugs. <3 Insects.
I didn't choose the Bug Lyfe, the Bug Lyfe chose me.

YES! Bingo, you are correct! SOnerd..sorry! :D The hard thing about fulgoridae is that sometimes, the insect is seen without the "peanut-shaped snout", which is actually hollow, and used to fool other insects that the fulgoridae is "bigger" than the insect...So yeah.. :lol:
