Bugs are out to play

The reason why Australia has cane toads - the cane beetle.

I don't know why it would be so far away from any sugar cane plantations, but this little guy wasn't very bright. I watched it struggle with all legs in the air for 10 mins before taking pity on it and helping it right itself.

Obviously God didn't think that particular design through.

We get tons of these each Summer at our house. Too bad I am terrified of them. When I was a kid I had one get stuck in my hair and ever since then I can't stand those things lol. I'd say you're very brave for even being able to help out the poor little guy haha.

I don't mind these little guys at all. They might be fairly large in size, but they're harmless to humans (ie. they won't kill you).

Spiders on the other hand...

I would have punted it out of the house. I can't stand bugs in my home, yet I live in the bug capital of the USA.

It was out on our balcony, so I technically consider it out of the house. Most bugs don't live very long lives in our home.
