Not such a common name, eh? Perhaps they use the scientific one for fruit-fly aristocracy? :wink: Carol. :clap:

Insects do have a liquid "plasma" that carries nutrients around their bodies, and also wastes to the appropriate area for erradication from the body.

But they do not have red blood cells as vertebrates do, which carries oxygen from the lungs to the other parts of the body.

If hurt, some of this plasma will ooze from the wound.

"Should you happen to be wandering around a campsite in Kruger at night, direct your torch light into the trees – if your eyes are sharp enough you might catch a glimpse of South Africa's longest stick insect.
The giant stick insect, Bactrododema krugeri, was only recently named. This amazing insect is almost 30cm long when its legs are stretched out. The female stick insect has a longer body than the male, with a length of 193mm compared to 163mm. However, when legs are taken into account the male is 295mm long compared to the female's 226mm".
