Could it be their unique method of reproduction :hmz: :think:

Quote:
Males inseminate the female by piercing the female's abdomen and depositing sperm directly into her bloodstream. In response to this traumatic insemination, female bat bugs have evolved a spermalege, a paragenital structure on their abdomen that limits the damage by guiding the male's sharp penile prong into a spongy area full of immune cells.

Centipedes have 1 pair of legs per body segment. How many pairs of legs do millipedes have per body segment?

Just to point out that neither millipedes nor centipeds are actually insects - they belong to a separate class of arthropods. :thumbs_up:

We often use the terms "bug" and "insect" interchangeably, despite the fact that they are not the same thing (although bugs do fall under the class of insects). What characteristics define a bug?

Thanks OWN :thumbs_up:

I believe the most common characteristic of true bugs (Hemipetra) is the mouthpart. They all have a long slender beak shaped mouth part that looks like a straw. They use to poke through plants and occasionally animal skin and suck out sap or blood.

Characteristics are divided into three regions: head, thorax and abdomen.

No!

"Among the arthropods, some animals are more closely related to one another than to others. So we have a name for creatures with three body parts and six legs: Insects. And we have another name for those that have two body parts and eight legs: Spiders".

:) What part of its body does a housefly use to taste things?
