He doesn't fly, he sticks to the wood with his fingertips. It's doable if you train hard enough.

Well they can keep the honeybee population down.

Honeybees are invasive when they get transplanted to a different country and can get overly abundant, diminishing the numbers of native bees. There are never enough hornets, Asian giant or otherwise, to eradicate all honeybees, so they merely keep honeybee population down to a level that lets other bees flourish.

Remember that you need native bees. Honeybees are not buzz-pollinators, so they are incapable of pollinating potatoes, commercial-grade tomatoes, cranberries, and a bunch of other crops, not to mention non-crop flowering plants like nightshade (for all you Datura abusers out there).

I'm kind of worried about my cat today. She was laying in her bed a lot more than usual and hardly got up to greet me and stuff like she usually does. She also only ate about 1/3 of her dinner. Besides this, I don't see much other strange behavior. She is 4 years old.

Holy shit stop talking to yourself "schizo" (in quotes because everybody knows you're a shitty LARPer who pretends to be mentally ill)

If I want a tank with a bobbit worm in it, where the fuck do I even purchase them from because no one in my city seems to carry them

And is there anything that can coexist with the worm in a tank or will it just murder everything

This but also it's hard as shit to buy real live rock these days, especially Fiji rock. Maricultured chunks of concrete (what passes for live rock these days) might be possible though.

I would suggest joining local reef clubs and ask around. Just advertise you're looking for one. You need to be proactive on it because generally reefers will kill them on sight. However if someone knows you're looking for one, he or she may be able to put it in a container for you.
My local aquarium has a bobbit worm. They made a long plexiglass tunnel for it, and you can watch it crawling around in the tunnel. It looks almost identical to your pic except the tunnel has a lot of curves so the tank isn't very tall. I'll take a photo next time I go. On Christmas and Halloween they swap out the tunnel for a special one shaped like a Christmas tree or a pumpkin.
The W H A T T H E F U C K N O W ?
do NOT let Bobbit worms see your face

do NOT let them know where you live
Why would you want one of these abominations for your tank?

What bug is this? Found it near my bed and I'm worried it might be a bed bug. I checked everywhere in the bed but didn't find anything else. Is this a bed bug or something else?

Are you sure?

Count how many legs. Bedbugs have 8. I think spider beetles have 6
>legs. Bedbugs have 8.
Aren't Bedbugs insects? Why do they have 8 legs?
You're right and I'm dumb. Was thinking ticks.
Bedbugs are flat. Is it flat? I can't tell from the pic
bedbugs have a pretty distinct flat segmented look
that doesn't look much like a bedbug to me
It's definitely not a bedbug.

Even if they knew there is noting to be afraid their muscle to fat ratio and posture will make it hard if not impossible for them to stay above water. That on top of being much worse at holding breach than humans

Its an instinctual fear in primates, not a learned one.
I wonder if a big flanged male pongo is more buoyant. They've got a bit more meat on their bones than your average chimp or gorilla.
the flanges inflate into a pongo lifejacket
just grab the chimp/gorilla and throw them in the nearest body of water, it's that simple
they will deal with the croc, and then come after you next.
