RE: Adapting to Change: Phenotypic Plasticity in Locusts, Humans and Other Animals

in StemSocial4 months ago

I've ever really read anything relating to locust until now and what an interesting piece to start with. Now I understand why they form a swarm. So, they only feed on their fellow locust as their own form of cannibalism or what? Then, how vulnerable do you think every locust within a swarm would be when they are busy feeding on crops?

Hi @gentleshaid,
Thanks for reading my blog and for finding it interesting. They will eat anything, and even seem to prefer eating each other. Here's a YouTube video that explains what drives them and how they behave.

I didn't know any of this but found it fascinating as I read.
Peace and health,
