The rare Buddha moth
This weird moth is a Picture-winged leaf moth, Siculodes sp. (Thyrididae). At first glance these moths appear to be a dead leaf when viewed from above; and at bottom view seem a spider perched on a dead leaf. However, a close examination reveals that the “dead leaf” is in fact the wings of the moth, and the “spider” is its body and legs.
These moths adopt a bizarre Buddha-like posture, with its body propped up vertically by its long stilt-like legs, and its wings outstretched like a bat. The wings are a marvellous example of camouflage - perfectly disguised as a dead leaf, complete with windows to simulate the nibblings of insects, and spotted with dark areas that could easily be mistaken for left mould.
Moths from the Siculodes genus are rarely encountered. Siculodes aurorula (bottom photo) has only been recorded on very rare occasions, with just few records from Brazil, Guyana and Trinidad. It undoubtedly also occurs in Venezuela and Surinam.
Should animals be permitted to hunt and kill other animals? Some futurists believe that humans should intervene, and solve the “problem” of predator vs. prey once and for all. We talked to the man who wants to use radical ecoengineering to put an end to the carnage.
This is like the crazy variant of veganism taken to evil mastermind levels.
This is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever read.
…no wayPlease tell me this is satire or just a huge hoax. People cannot be this thick headed.

Look at how HuffPo, the supposed LIBERAL blog, called her video a ‘rant’.
ANY TIME Black people or not-Black POC are speaking about racism,
The white mainstream media calls it a ‘rant’ to delegitimize it.
it’s important to learn why “having a thing” for a certain race of people is fetishization and is certainly not ok
