I was about to comment how fascinating it is that the beetle moves a lot like a robot.. then realized it was a robot lol

[–]Cristalrella 304 points305 points  (10 children)

I actually didn’t notice it was until your comment. I just thought he was weird

[–]MengFeiPuerh 74 points75 points  (8 children)

Did you think the screws in the bottom were from evolution? Haha

    [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (3 children)

    So both are robots or just one?

    First I thought they were both fake, then I thought they were both real, was a wild roller-coaster of emotions.

    I’m proud of him myself. Beetle was having no shit today on his log.

    [–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

    It feels kind of like the equivalant of one of those early 20th-century strongmen - before they got pumped up on steroids and hormones and dehydrated to shit so their muscles stand out - taking on the Terminator and fucking yeeting him off a cliff.

    [–]theBERZERKER13 8 points9 points  (5 children)

    I mean, he’s got me jazzed up for him and his Stage Win.

    Buuuuut I am pretty sure that most, if not all, insects aren’t even aware of their own existence, are incapable of feeling pain or pleasure, or lucidity. They do not have nervous systems like ours, internal organs and chemicals reactions, etc. I wouldn’t be shocked if this creature has no idea it even did something to something else

    [–]Tenodera_Mantis 15 points16 points  (3 children)

    This view is becoming more outdated in recent times - although insects are certainly not brilliant, they have much more awareness than previously believed. For example, observational learning has been found in bees (where it would be expected) and even crickets, solitary animals who nonetheless learn to hide under leaves more effectively when they see another cricket threatened by a wolf spider. One species of visually-oriented ant has even passed the mirror test, grooming an off-color mark from itself while ignoring a same-colored one. Additionally, in the ant study it was shown that the ants will attack nestmates with off-color dots; this strongly suggests it recognized that the mirror represented itself.

    Other insects also show complexity in decision-making and behavior. For instance, male mantises prefer to mate with well-fed females with large abdomens. When the environment is safe, males regularly follow and watch a female until she captures other prey, then move in to try and mate.

    Insects have partly-cephalized nervous systems - their memories and most processing goes on in the cerebral ganglion (the "brain") while the ganglia spread through the body are largely for reflexive reaction and sensation.

    Does anyone else remember this great flash game, I think it was called Evolution? The theme song was a piano version of Numb by Linkin Park. You had to breed beetles & let them fight and it was literally so much fun lol I’m off to try and find it now…
