Not to be confused with the 1995 spandex superheroine film "Black Scorpion". This movie begins with a volcano erupting south of the border, and people mysteriously dying. Geologists Hank (Richard Denning) and Arturo (Carlos Rivas) travel to the small town of San Lorenzo, Mexico to investigate. They soon discover that the eruption cracked open an underground cave that contained hordes of giant prehistoric autistic looking scorpions that have been responsible for the killings. As the autistic arachnids begin nomming the local population Hank and Arturo must come up with a plan to take these monsters down once and for all.
Here, on my way to the river, I'm looking for interesting insects in the brush next to a footpath. There are many pollinators at work, but no unusual insect is to be found.
So I go wade fishing for chub, using a small spoon that gets results. When wading downstream, suddenly a rare visitor appears right on my rod. It's the "Imago" of a dragonfly that probably needs some rest. Undeterred by my bright yellow camera it just sits there permitting me to take some unusual footage on that nice warm afternoon.
Have you ever been visited by dragonflies or other animals (except mosquitos) while fishing? Please leave your comment below.
Better break out the pesticide, because seismic activity in the Arctic has recently freed a giant prehistoric praying mantis from the Arctic ice, that voraciously preys on the American military at the DEW Line and works its way south. As the enormous insect makes its way towards the much warmer climate of Washington DC, can the soldiers and scientists of America stop it before Congress winds up on the menu? (hopefully not) This Big bug bonanza stars Craig Stevens, William Hopper, Alix Talton.
This is just a cool old 1950's monster film that was crawling around my hard drive and I decided to upload it. I will upload more like it on a regular basis under the tag "Creature Feature Fridays". The Synopsis of the film goes as follows: While investigating a series of mysterious deaths, Sergeant Ben Peterson (James Whitmore) finds a young girl (Sandy Descher) who is unable to speak. As Peterson joins forces with FBI agent Robert Graham (James Arness) and scientist Dr. Harold Medford (Edmund Gwenn), he discovers that all the incidents are due to giant ants that have been mutated by atomic radiation. Peterson and Graham, with the aid of the military, attempt to find the queen ants and destroy the nests before the danger spreads.
Insects are the most diverse group of creatures in the entire animal kingdom and they've been around in countless forms nearly since the beginning of life on Earth. They can be found virtually everywhere and doing basically everything from pollinating plants to spreading disease. They are possibly the most "alien" group of creatures on the planet! As such, they've also managed to infiltrate our myths, religions, and our SciFi as well. Is it really our planet or is it theirs? This episode travels back in time to explore that question and in particular a time period wen call the Carboniferous, when the Reign of the Bugs was at its peak.....

OMG I found crispy insects in the candy shelf. And not because of a lack of cleaning. No, they are sold as a snack! That is so weird. I saw insects to eat at the market here in Thailand before but never ever pre packed side by side with potatoe chips.
What do you think about insects as a snack? Ever tried it? Write down in the comments and let me know.
